THIS WEEK (20th May 2018):
THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK
- Various images are used in the First Reading (Acts of the Apostles) for the Holy Spirit. Which images help you? What images would you use?
- Would you describe yourself as ‘under the influence of the Holy Spirit’ (2nd reading)? If not, why not? If, yes, how does it affect your way of life?
- ‘Forgiveness’ (Gospel) is the mark of a Christian. Do you forgive? Do you find it easy or hard? Who can you not forgive? Why? Vincent Harvey
