I believe in creation.

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Why is there something rather than nothing? What is the purpose of living? What is the point of living? Why would God create the world? All of these questions have the same answer: Love. Read more

In defence of an Apostle

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

When I was young I remember having the impression that after Judas the “next worst” Apostle was Thomas. The way he was presented to me was as close-minded or a fool, who was unable to accept the Resurrection and wouldn’t be faithful when all the other Apostles had perfectly embraced the truth. When I encountered him in the Gospels for myself, particularly in the Gospel of John, this was not the figure I found. The epithet “Doubting Thomas” seemed not merely harsh, but untrue. So here are my thoughts in defending this great missionary Apostle.

Trinity

Sunday, June 11, 2017

Some time ago someone told me what I’m sure is a myth, that many bishops selected Trinity Sunday as a good day to issue a pastoral letter, so as to spare clergy the difficulty of preaching on the Trinity. It’s certainly true that a number of popular analogies tend to get us into tricky waters fairly quickly:

Trinity Sunday

Sunday, May 31, 2015

What is the point of the covenant God makes with his people? In other words, who is God to love his people in the way he chooses to love us?

After all, God is God and we can live quietly on earth with or without him. Read more

Our Lady of Walsingham

Monday, September 24, 2012
Today is the feast of Our Lady of Walsingham. Walsingham is known as 'England's Nazareth', a place of pilgrimage for almost a thousand years, ever since the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Richeldis de Faverches in the eleventh century. So, Our Lady of Walsingham carries a special significance to the Christians of our land. The National Shrine reminds us of the ancient faith we hold, which has shaped our culture and graced our people over the centuries. Walsingham remains a beautiful witness to the Annunciation at Nazareth, when God 'pitched his tent among us', taking our human flesh to himself in Jesus Christ. Read more
