Prayer blog: Four Insights from Amoris Laetitia

20 Apr 2016 | Michael McVeigh

Pope Francis’ latest exhortation has come out just in time for me, as I prepare to be married in June.

While many have focused on the aspects to do with the divorced and remarried, and couples in crisis, I’ve chosen to focus my reading more on what the Pope is saying in the exhortation about our relationship with God and with each other.


True love: A step-by-step guide

10 Mar 2016 | Michael McVeigh

God sees every person in the world as special. So for God the relationships we form with each other are equally precious.

Prayer blog: Making 'Xmas' more Christian

09 Dec 2015 |  Michael McVeigh

Celebrating Christmas in different parts of the world can be an interesting experience. One year, I was visiting my sister in Dubai. It was an amazing experience to visit bright shopping malls, covered in tinsel and other non-religious festive decorations, playing non-religious Christmas tunes, with not a Christian symbol in sight. The celebration was there, and there was a significant warmth to it. But it had become something very different in the majority Muslim culture - Xmas, or Christmas without Christ.
