Let us be of Christ not of ourselves. St Columban

Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for August 2016:
"That Christians may live the Gospel, giving witness to faith, honesty, and love of neighbor."

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
