RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton...

 

rymheaderWhen I first heard about the RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton I was a little apprehensive. Unfortunately friends of mine had been to Young Catholic Adult groups and had been disappointed. They usually fell into one of two categories: too spiritless and nothing ‘Catholic’ about them, or rigid and unaccommodating to anyone who doesn’t share the same views as the leader of the group!

 

I didn’t know what to expect, whether everyone would have the same outlook and approach to religion that I had, and whether the style of worship and activities would be what I’d have chosen. I decided to leave my prejudices at the door and a year and a half later, I’m so glad I did. The group was not what I expected, and not how I would have done things – it was so much better! When I opened my mind to the possibility that this might just be a group of normal people doing something a bit different to what young people might normally do, I found a new spiritual home among a new group of fellow Catholics whom I am now proud to call my friends.

CSsR Historic Stained Glass...

 

When the monastery in Sunderland was sadly closed, the windows from the community oratory were removed and packed up in a crate. They remained crated for a few years until it was decided that their new home would be in one of our oldest monasteries in the UK. These lovely windows are over a hundred years old and they portray some of our holy men; Saint Alphonsus Liguori CSsR, Saint Gerard Majella CSsR and Saint Clement Hofbauer CSsR. See the windows below in the community oratory Liverpool...

In just under two weeks a group of Redemptorists,

co-workers and friends

 

from the Provinces of Dublin and London

will begin the walk to

Santiago de Compostela!

 

For those of you who may not know anything about a walk to Santiago de Compostela, it should be noted that the group will walk 100 miles!

 

Why do this seemingly mad thing?

 

Simple!

 

The group are doing the walk...

LETTER FROM THE SUPERIOR GENERAL ON THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN IRAQ...

Michael Brehl

Dear Confreres and friends,

 

All of us are very aware of the serious humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Not only must we pray for peace, and support international efforts to negotiate an end to the violence and war, but we are very aware of the needs of thousands of families who have been forced from their homes. As our confrere, Archbishop Bashar Warda, C.Ss.R., recounts in his letter, many tens of thousands are now refugees relying on the assistance of the Christian community of the Archdiocese of Erbil.

 

Again this week in his Angelus address, the Holy Father appeals to all people of good will not only to pray for peace, but also to offer concrete assistance to the suffering people of Iraq. Through Archbishop Bashar, we are offered the possibility of responding concretely to their needs. I encourage you to be as generous as you can in the face of this crisis so that the Archdiocese of Erbil and the whole Christian community can come to the aid of these refugee families. In their name, I thank you for your generosity.

Feast of the Assumption of BVM...

 

assumption of the bvm

 

Taken from St Alphonsus’ “The Glories of Mary”:

 

MARY dies; but how does she die? She dies entirely detached from any affection for created things, and dies consumed with that divine love with which her most holy heart was always and entirely inflamed. Oh holy mother, thou hast already left the earth; do not forget us, miserable pilgrims, who remain in this valley of tears struggling against so many enemies, who desire to see us lost in hell. Ah, by the merits of thy precious death, obtain for us detachment from earthly things, pardon of our sins, love to God, and holy perseverance; and, when the hour of our death shall arrive, assist us from heaven with thy prayers, and obtain for us to come and kiss thy feet in paradise.

Heroic Priesthood...

 

This is an American film, but it is Catholic...

so therefore Universal!

 

 

Enjoy!

...and think about it!

 

"I am very enthused as I look to the future of the priesthood,

these young guys grew up with this heroic pope.

I think John Paul when he become Pope,

got this ship going in the direction of mission and purpose, and a Christocentricism,

he was very clear about the centrality of Jesus Christ.

They also caught John Paul's

optimism, his joyful spirit, his claiming of a Catholic tradition

... they loved that...and they have that too."

Fr Robert Barron

4th August 1914...

At the going down of the sun

and in the morning

we will remember them.

    29th July, 2104

    Dear confreres and friends,

     

    All good wishes for the feast of St. Alphonsus. Although the language used in many of his writings is difficult for today, the sentiments behind them remain powerful in our Church and the society in which we live. I hope we can all continue to be challenged by his passionate love of Jesus Christ, his spirit and his charism.
