This Week's Readings 10th January
For you to read, to reflect on and to lead your prayer
God’s call is mysterious, it comes in the darkness of faith. It is so fine, so subtle that it is only with the deepest silence within us that we can hear it. And yet nothing is surer or stronger, nothing so decisive and overpowering as that call. This call is uninterrupted: God is always calling us. (Carlo Carretto)
