There have been three themes running through my mind in this fifth week of ordinary time.
The first in the reality of ourselves as individuals.
The second is prayer and its purpose.
The third is what can be gained from Lectio Devina.
We started our week with our priest here in Lincolnshire telling us that we were people of prayer. That the Muslims may pray five times a day but we have to pray all day. That we should pray when we see an ambulance rushing past, or any event.
I find this almost impossible. Once I leave a church, I forget about it. I wonder what the trick is.
Tying a knot in one’s handkerchief, perhaps!
