“The Church does not exist to condemn people but to bring about an encounter with the visceral love of God’s mercy.” ― Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy “People are looking for someone to listen to them. Someone willing to grant them time, to listen to their dramas and difficulties. This is what I call the “apostolate of the ear,” and it is important. Very important. I feel compelled to say to confessors: talk, listen with patience, and above all tell people that God loves them.” ― Pope Francis, The Name of God is Mercy

Craig Lodge House of Prayer are happy to inform you of this weekend retreat - "This weekend will be a wonderful opportunity to explore Pope Francis’s exhortation on the family, published during the Year of Mercy, ‘Amoris Laetitia’. A chance to hear some excellent teaching on a subject of vital importance to us all. You can download the document/read online here>>> Pope Francis begins his exhortation Amoris Laetitia telling us how the joy of love experienced by families is also a joy for the Church. Yet, while the desire for marriage and family remains vibrant among the young and this encourages us, at the same time there are many signs of crisis in marriage that call out for the Church’s loving care. Our retreat will take as its starting point the situation of families in today’s world and, from there, reflect on how the Holy Spirit is leading us to renewed awareness of the importance of marriage and the family. (£100)"
