Live the Word in February

In February we continue the theme of contemplative prayer, focusing on silent retreat and the knowledge that contemplation is a gift. We return briefly to the mini-series on the books of the Bible with a look at Leviticus. Our new Lent series by Fr Denis McBride takes us in reflection on the way of the cross, first as Jesus falls for the first time and then as Simon Cyrene helps him carry the cross. Fr Denis’ unique style and reflective manner make the journey along the Via Dolorosa as real now as it was two thousand years ago. Throughout the month the reflections support and extend the daily readings.


Tell us what you’d like to know!

Live the Word is designed to help to build us up in the knowledge and practice of our faith, so if you’d like our team of theologians and pastors to tackle particular issues in the future, do let us know.
