<pYes, we might go back to some of our old bad ways. But as soon as we turn back to Our Lord again, as soon as we shut that door, we go into the inner room of our soul. As Saint Catherine of Sienna says: “Make a cloister in your soul for prayer!” As soon as we go back, that peace is there to be rediscovered. And that peace has to be fostered. Nurtured. Without it, many of the things that we’re distracted by are not terribly important.   Well, you might think, Father, you don’t know what my life is like. My problems are terribly important.

<p

<pI’ll put it to you in this way. If you knew that when the clock strikes 11:00am – at the end of Mass when the clock strikes 11:00am you’re going to drop dead – how important would your problems now be? If you’re going to die at 11:00 O’clock. And then that will give you an idea of how important they really are. Because most of them we’ll think, we’ll, their kind of relative suddenly. If I have to drop dead at 11:00 I’m not so bothered now about the quarrel, my 50-year feud with my sister. In fact, I’d ring her straight after Mass and say, “I’m sorry. And if you can, forgive me!” Things like that. Suddenly they cease to be so important and looming on our horizon.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen….

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
