PRAYING WITH POPE FRANCIS:
"In life’s ups and downs, make prayer your constant...to ensure the relationship with God, who is the true Companion of man’s journey, in the midst of the many hardships of life: good or bad,” the pope said June 24.“But always pray: ‘Thank you, Lord. I’m afraid, Lord. Help me, Lord. Forgive me, Lord.’”

"Our lives have been changed by the experience of the pandemic and it is clear that we cannot simply return to how things were before lockdown. We remain centred on the Lord Jesus and His command at the Last Supper to “do this in memory of me.” We must now rebuild what it means to be Eucharistic communities, holding fast to all that we hold dear, while at the same time exploring creative ways to meet changed circumstances." - Click here
