We are already at the month of May the month of Our Lady, and maybe wondering where 2021 has gone. Let’s use this month to help us renew our devotion to Mary. We call her Mother of the Church, so let’s commend ourselves, our families and loved ones, our parishes and our world to her maternal protection.
In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus says “I know my own and my own know me”. Do we feel comfortable that Jesus knows us through and through? Equally, on our journey of faith together, do we truly feel able to say that we know Jesus through and through? Let’s pray that we may come to know Him at least a little as well as he knows each and every one of us!
Every so often I take a look at some of the strangely mesmerising videos on YouTube showing the new volcano in Iceland. It began a few weeks ago and now there are 6 or 8 ‘vents’ spewing smoke or lava, looking spectacular especially at night. To think that this is all going on deep down under our feet in the magma of the earth.
A bit like all of us, I suppose – you never know what is going on underneath.
So let’s tread carefully and prayerfully with one another.
There are many videos of the volcano available such as youtu.be/p9IH0EqrxAA (shown above), some of which are live, search ‘Iceland volcano’.
