Thought for the day: Sometimes the simpler, the deeper and the deeper, the simpler. John’s Gospel illustrates this: using no technical or esoteric vocabulary, the writer nevertheless manages to hold before us God, the beyond in the midst, in the happy phrase of Bonhoeffer. In some senses, the deepest reality is also the simplest. Love is our origin. Love is our constant calling. Love is our fulfilment in heaven. None of the mystery is lost and yet none of the love is missed. The writer orientates us towards the Mystery, lost in wonder love and praise. Prayer: God, help us recognise you, the divine beyond in the midst of the everyday reality. Spirit, inspire in us to see the God of love in everyone and everything. Jesus, be with us always to the end of the age. To you be the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Pope Francis – Tweet: Whoever welcomes a person in need performs not only an act of charity, but also of faith, because he or she recognizes Jesus in the brother or sister.

Paidreacha roimh na Scrúduithe
Lord, I ask You to help me at this stressful time. I feel that so much depends on these exams. I feel that in addition to carrying my own burdens, I am carrying the expectations of so many others – family, friends, society.
Help me to keep calm at this time, so that I can think straight and apply myself to the best of my ability. Let Your Spirit help and inspire me, so that I can remember all that I have studied and put together my answers in the best way. Guide me in all my ways, so that I will find fulfilment in You. Amen.
(Calm the Soul – The Poor Clares, Galway)
