God is Love
Fr Pat led us this evening into an exploration of who we are, who God is and how love - God's love holds us together.
Further reading for those who attended, and essential reading for those who could not is as follows:
Who is Jesus?
At this session, we explored the question - Who is Jesus? Jesus was human - like us - and we looked at scripture passages that expose the personality of this person. We considered the image on the shroud of Turin - weather this is an actual artefact of Christ or an early medieval illustration created by unknown technique - it shows a crucified christ in his most human form. And we considered Christ, son of God.
The following additional material may prove beneficial to those who were able to be there, and is essential reading / viewing for those unable to come.
As part of this years Season of Creation – a Catholic and Ecumenical season in which we consider our environment – we repeated the stations of creation which took place two years ago.
The walk was interspersed with prayers about creation. and was inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’
