Behold I stand at the door and knock, says the Lord. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door to me, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me. From the New Testament, Book of Revelation chapter 3 verse 20
Hello dear friend in Christ,
I hope you are keeping well! It is a happy day for churches in England as they are allowed to open for Holy Mass. The fact that Covid-19 secure rules apply is a good thing as it keeps people as safe as possible from the virus. From next Sunday in Wales churches will also be able to conduct services.
Today, in the liturgical calendar of the Church it is the Sixteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time. Before receiving Holy Communion we say the above Bible quotation Rev 3:20. Remember that it is a quote dear to my heart. So much so that I wrote a book based on its foundation. (See details below.)
Today I want to draw your attention to a publication called the Catholic People. It is the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Cardiff and is edited by Dr James Campbell. I am blessed to have a regular column in it. This month my column concerns remembering the constant presence of the Holy Spirit Who will see you through every aspect of your life - the good times and the bad times. Among other features in this issue you will see how churches and the Church have been coping in lockdown.

If you want to join other Christians on our journey towards getting to know God better you could say this prayer, or one of your own:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I want so much to know You better. Please help me to understand that you are always with me, waiting patiently for me to welcome You into my daily challenges and choices. I ask this in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.”
I wrote a book showing clearly how to come close to God. It is called 9 Days to Heaven, How to make everlasting meaning of your life.
Here is the link for the book trailer: http://youtu.be/154luv8KMns You can buy the book on lots of sites the web. Or click this link:
It is also available as an e-book and here is a link for that: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Days-Heaven-Everlasting-Meaning-ebook/dp/B00AIR8CSC/ref=sr_1_3_title_1_kin?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356721426&s
