Pray for Strength
Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man. • Luke 21:36
The One Constant in Our Lives
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. • Luke 21:33
We Offer Thanks—Eucharistia • St. Catherine of Alexandria; Thanksgiving Day
Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
and let your faithful ones bless you. • Psalm 145:10
Writing on the Wall
…Opposite the lampstand, the fingers of a human hand appeared, writing on the…wall in the king’s palace. When the king saw the wrist and hand that wrote, his face blanched; his thoughts terrified him, his hip joints shook, and his knees knocked. • Dn 5:5-6
Keep an Eternal Perspective • St. Clement I, St. Columban, Bl. Miguel Agustín Pro
All that you see here—the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone… • Luke 21:6

‘Look at the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Luke 21:29-33 (NRSV) #gospeloftheday #pray #faith
‘But before all this occurs, they will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. Luke 21:12-19 (NRSV) #gospeloftheday #pray #scripture #faith
Our Advent retreat begins on Thursday 25th over on our website.
The weeks of Advent are a call to a deeper reflection on the life of Jesus as he stepped beyond his world into ours as our companion and friend.
He said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on.’ Luke 21:1-4 (NRSV) #gospeloftheday #pray #scripture #faith
Our Advent Retreat this year is entitled Stepping Beyond.
The theme of our retreat this year is exactly that - Stepping Beyond - and will be inspired by Pope Francis’ Encyclical Letter Fratelli Tutti, on fraternity and social friendship.

Do you need to interrupt any patterns in your life?
Interrupting patterns for spiritual growth | Leah Perrault
During this fourth wave of the pandemic, God has been subtly (and boldly) pressing for some interrupting to happen in my world.

A Pandemic Litany of Thanks | Leah Perrault
We are walking through the strangest of days, living in a state of prolonged grief, change, and fatigue. Though ...
How do I keep my heart from hardening?
Soft, a still more excellent way... | Leah Perrault
Harden not my heart. Or my spirit. Lead me to a still more excellent way. Soften me to a strength that goes well beyond my own.

On setting down our defenses... | Leah Perrault
Defense often follows discomfort when reconciliation is needed. Defenses divert us from being in real relationships.
It shouldn't take the the confirmation of 215 children's deaths or the murder of a Muslim family. What is the cost of (y)our comfort?
The cost of (my) comfort | Leah Perrault
It has been a profoundly difficult few weeks to live in Treaty territory and the homeland of the Metis; I am deeply uncomfortable.
