Find Your Way


Dear Friends of The Shrine of St. Anthony,


Happy Ordinary Time!

In this time between our Christmas celebration and the beginning of Lent we enter into "ordinary time." It is very easy to experience the closeness of the Lord during the holy seasons but we are invited to experience the Lord in the "ordinariness" of our daily lives.

Pope Francis, answering the questions: "what is prayer," stated it is, "first and foremost dialogue, personal relationship with God." And in prayer, just like in any dialogue, it needs moments of silence "together with Jesus." This, he said, is because it is only in the "mysterious silence of God" that his Word can resound in our heart.

Francis explained that to pray is not difficult, and is something that Jesus himself taught us to do first of all by example, when in the Gospels he withdraws to a secluded in place to pray.

The Shrine is an excellent place to come and enter into the silence and listen to the Lord. Before you come for Ashes why not stop by a few weeks or days earlier during your "ordinary" busy schedule and listen to the Lord's voice.
