WHAT IS A SAINT ?

Fr Paul Maloney OSA

St Gerard Majella once exclaimed to God:

“Alright then, I’ll BE a saint!”

In today’s world when so many people have been Beatified

or Canonised, what are the qualities we look for

in our saints, and do we consider we might possess

these qualities ourselves ? Spend the day in discovering

what it means to be a saint.

PRAYING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Fr John McCall OSA

Jesus’ gift to us is his Holy Spirit. An invitation to reflect

once again on the mystery of God’s love for us

given to us and his Church at Pentecost. This gift is

given to us personally to sustain us, empower us and

encourage us on our journey to God.

STORYTELLING –

SEARCHING, REFLECTING & FAITH

Br Paul Skippen OSA

A time to refresh, renew and energise one’s personal

journey .

Storytelling. Jesus did it. The Old Testament prophets

did it. Humans have been telling stories to each other

since the dawn of time. In those early days it was simply

a matter of sitting around a fire recounting the

day’s events. All that was required was a storyteller

and a listening ear. Our spirituality is in our own story.

This prayer day will offer the opportunity to enter into

spirit of storytelling and encourage the group to be

open to all the possibilities of God.

THE PARABLES OF JESUS Fr John McCall OSA

Jesus reveals Himself to us in the parables. These reflections

on Jesus’ parables invite us to constantly reshape

our own image of our loving God. An image we

began to develop in our childhood and one that needs

constantly to be deepened and corrected by God’s

word in the scriptures.
