A Christian Voice in Your Home
Tired of listening to The Archers or endless updates on energy prices on your journey home? Bored of having incessantly samey music on in the background whilst you cook? Finding it difficult to pray? What we listen to casually can easily wear us down and depress our spirit.
However, it might just be able to uplift us too, thanks to Radio Maria, a Catholic radio station that has recently set up a new studio in London. The 24hr broadcast includes talk shows about life as a Catholic, daily catechesis, live prayer, a truly delightful and eclectic selection of music – and much much more!
Whether you find encouragement praying with others on-air or tuning into a conversation between the faithful and interesting guests who can bring you new insights and help you feel less alone in your faith, Radio Maria is an invaluable Christian voice wherever you may be.
What’s more, you can get involved! It is a thoroughly local radio station, relying on volunteers and often bringing the broadcast to parish churches. Mining the rich trove of wisdom of our Christian heritage, Radio Maria knits England’s faithful together in a shared love of God and neighbour. What’s not to love?
Available on DAB+ radio in Greater London (Radio Maria England), the Radio Maria Play app for smartphones and tablets, the live-player on www.radiomariaengland.uk and the Amazon Alexa device. Podcasts are available through Anchor, Spotify, Google and other podcast providers. Get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 302 1251.
Pondering and Praying Vatican II
Archbishop John Wilson
Wednesday 6th March 2024 6.00pm for 6.30pm
Amigo Hall, adjacent to St George’s Cathedral, Southwark, South London
Have you heard about Vatican II, and want to know more, but are not sure where or how to begin? Then this little introduction is for you. It will help you start a journey of discovery by pondering and praying some essential themes. Please do not be daunted. This resource requires no previous or specialist knowledge. It has been written for easy access to what the Church said at Vatican II, and what this means for our life of faith in the Body of Christ.
Although many people have heard of Vatican II, few have actually read or considered the documents, not even the four key Constitutions. This resource offers an introduction to these main texts
and their themes.
Hopefully, Pondering and Praying Vatican II will encourage more people to read the full documents for themselves. Significantly, it will help readers ask themselves what the teaching of the Second Vatican Council might mean for them and how they might pray in light of
it. Anyone can begin these reflections and see where the journey leads.
There will be refreshments and a short presentation Books for sale on the evening, also available at www.PaulineUK.org
