You are Invited! by the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton!

The Diocese of Arundel and Brighton will be exploring God’s invitation to enter into relationship with Him and what that means for our lives. It will be a wonderful journey of discovery that helps us to know more deeply who we are in the eyes of God and to live authentically as His beloved. There will be challenges - we may have to take a 'long hard look' at ourselves - but by the end of the programme we aim to be transformed and empowered to become Spirit filled disciples who rejoice in God’s goodness and want to build His Kingdom here on earth.

 

Each Monday during Lent an episode of Invited will be premiered on the diocesan website and across our social media channels.

This episode will contain teaching and testimony on a particular aspect of that week's theme, with time for prayer and reflection.

 

The theme is Repent and Believe: What is the Good News?

Episode One

Monday 22nd February - God is love and created us for relationship with Him

Episode Two

Monday 1st March - The relationship between God and man has been broken through sin

Episode Three

Monday 8th March- Jesus restores that relationship through His death and resurrection

Episode Four

Monday 15th March - We are personally invited to accept this gift of salvation

Episode Five

 

Monday 22nd March - How participation in Holy Week can deepen our understanding of this Good News.

·      Theresa McNamara – secondary school chaplain, wife & mother

·      Fr David King – parish priest and formation enthusiast



"On the eve of the Season of Creation, Pope Francis issued a profound prayer intention that the planet’s resources will not be plundered, but shared in a just and respectful manner. He prays that today, not tomorrow, we will take care of Creation. Pope Francis’ leadership on the climate emergency and on the coronavirus has been unmatched. But he can’t do it alone. It’s time for the global Catholic community to rally behind his message.
Sign the Catholic Petition for just action on COVID and the Climate Emergency.
Show the Pope and the world that you care!"

 

Thanks to Mary Hallam for providing the fascinating video and information that is found on the website!

 Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.
