Let us be of Christ not of ourselves. St Columban

Pope Francis' Universal Intention for July 2016:
"That indigenous peoples, whose identity and very existence are threatened, will be shown due respect."

If you wish to know the Creator, understand the creation.   St Columban

The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. Words of Jesus from the Gospel of John, Chapter 6, Verse 63

Lord, accomplish what is good in me and grant me what I know I need.   St Columban
