As yesterday and in addition to the Daily Stop and Pray, a few thoughts and reflections for you, I hope, trust and pray it might be of help.


The following reading formed part of the Office of Morning Prayer from the Divine Office (the daily Prayer of the Church) from yesterday (Feast of St Joseph). I often feel the words as it were jump of the page, they did yesterday. The ‘house’ described in the reading could be your own home, the community of the college; but in Scripture it describes where God dwells, within our daily lives.


Second Book of Samuel 7:28-29

Lord, you are God indeed, your words are true, and you have made this fair promise to your servant. Be pleased, then, to bless the House of your servant, that it may continue for ever in your presence; for you, Lord, have spoken; and with your blessing the House of your servant will be for ever blessed.


Heart Speaks to Heart

I came across this prayer, I thought it might help!

‘The Weaver’

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me, I cannot see the colours the Lord worketh steadily.

Oft times the Lord weaveth sorrow and I in foolish pride, forget he sees the upper and I the underside.

Not till the looms are silent and the shuttles cease to fly, shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful in the weavers skilful hands as the threads of gold and silver in the pattern the Lord has planned.


United in thought, reflection and prayer.
