Week 47 – New Pope, Good Interview, Old Story – Catholic World Report “Judging by some of the reactions to the September 19th America interview with Pope Francis, which was originally conducted over three days in August, you might be tempted to think a pontiff had never given an interview before.

Week 45 – Silent Treatment – Article from Messenger of St Anthony

“‘Be still, and know that I am God,’ is the call of Psalm 46:10. In addition to pouring our concerns before God in prayer, there s great value in simply being ‘still’ or quiet in God’s presence. The 17th Century mystic, Madame Jeanne Marie De La Mothe Guyon wrote, ‘It is impossible to live in your inmost being where Christ lives without loving silence.’ Such silence in the divine presence gives us the chance to slow our pace, clear the mind, and give top priority to our relationship with God.” View Article >   Week 45 – Silent Treatment – Article from Messenger of St Anthony
