Thought for the day: How did any of us make the journey towards faith in Christ? No doubt a great part of it is simply what we received, usually from family. At some point, did I make a conscious choice? Perhaps at other times, I felt like walking away from the faith project? What kept me going? Did a more personal ownership of faith result? Perhaps I can identify with the intuition of John O’Donahue, “Faith is helpless attraction to the divine.” In spite of everything, in spite of myself, somehow it is part of who I am. Prayer: Mysterious God, we are those who have seen and at the same time not seen. Help to look beyond the simple gifts of each day to see you the giver behind, and in, every gift. Help us embrace the grace that we may know true blessedness in believing.

Pope’s Intention for April For the Role of Women.  We pray that the dignity and immense value of women be recognised in every culture, and for the end of discrimination that they experience in different parts of the world.

Pope Francis on X: Jesus broke through the darkness of the tomb and lives forever: His presence can fill anything with light. With Him, every day becomes a step in an eternal journey, every “today” can hope for a “tomorrow”, every end a new beginning.

An Easter Prayer

God, give me the eyes to see

the beauty of Spring,

and to behold your majesty

in every living thing –

and may we see in lacy leaves

and every budding flower

the hand that rules the universe

with gentleness and power –

and may this Easter grandeur

that Spring lavishliy imparts

awaken faded flowers of faith

lying dormant in our hearts,

and give us ears to hear, dear God,

the Springtime song of birds

with messages more meaningful

than man’s often empty words

telling harried human beings

who are lost in dark despair –

‘Be like us and do not worry,

For God has you in his care.
