At all the masses since Easter we have been working our way through the Acts of the Apostles and the Gospel of Saint John. The theme is consistent, and culminates in the Lord's statement to the Apostles: “I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” The Lord makes clear to us that He is with us through the gift of the Spirit, and that he does not abandon us. He reminds us that we will be challenged and have difficulty in the world, and that we should not see adversity as punishment, but rather as something which unites us to the Lord and His offering on the cross. I have included here the symbol of the Carthusian Order. It is a Triumphant Cross, it represents Christ's triumph over the world. In prayer, especially when we contemplate the mystery, we are to take comfort in the Faith that our Lord has conquered evil and death, and that His Cross remains firm as the world turns [Stat Crux dum volvitur orbis]. Love and Peace, Fr. Liam Quinlan

We welcome Victoria Claps, daughter of Joseph and Christina Claps, into the Catholic Church. She became a member through the Sacrament of Baptism. May God bless Victoria and her family.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we must also love one another. (1 Jn 4:11) LIVE THE LITURGY Prayer is essential to Christian living and decision making. The goal of prayer is really rather simple. By prayer we can deepen our love and desire for God and increase our knowledge and understanding of God's unconditional love for us. Prayer is not about acquiring this or that or convincing God to act on our behalf. Prayer is the way we begin the process of change, of coming to see as God sees and realize that God's presence permeates all God has created. If we strive to develop this life of prayer, then Jesus naturally will become our way, our truth and our life. We can then live in the world as he would live in the world.
