  1. Ad Jesum per Mariam

    Posted on

    For Rosary Makers, 

    I have been making Rosaries for almost 15 years and have recently REALLY centred my life upon this craft which I can only describe as a true gift of grace and love from Our Blessed Mother to bring me closer to fullness of life in Christ … Because we can only truly get there through her. She was the woman that undid the knot of Eve’s sin and brought true faith, love and life to Our Lord. We can do NOTHING without Christ who strengthens us…. 

    ‘Ad Jesum per Mariam’

    To Jesus through Mary 

  2. A Friend of Beads with Faith on Prayer ...

    Dearest Friend

    I have taken some time to mull over your e mail.. Much I identified with from parts of my journey so it has been good for me to reflect. Looking back and seeing how some of these issues have resolved, not resolved because of anything I have done or not done…resolved through Providence.

    When you step back from regarding the old testament as individual books, and see the sweep of the history of relationship between the chosen people and God… There were times of deep devotion and observance, times of exile, of disregard but perhaps above all of a yearning and a feeling that fulfilment of that yearning is for tomorrow. Never for today.

  3. Pope Francis on Our Blessed Mother

    Posted on

    The virgin Mary helps us to grow, to face life and be free.

    A mother helps children grow, which is why she trains them not to give in to laziness, not to recline in a comfortable life which is content to just have things. Our Lady does just that with us, she helps us to grow humanly and in faith, to be strong and not give in to the temptation of being human and Christian in a superficial way, but to live with responsibility, to strive higher and higher.

    I have found myself quite disappointed with what I have heard and seen in the behaviour of members of Catholic schools on all levels – and also in some cases I have been incredibly pleasantly surprised by what I have seen, heard or experienced myself.  I am starting to realise that it is not the ‘state of Catholic Education’ I should be concerned with: it is actually the state of the world.
