Third Week of Easter – Opening Scripture – by Fr

This week we suggested you read a poem written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), a German protestant pastor and theologian, who was involved in the resistance movement against the Nazi regime in the 1930s and during World War II.

This weekend, inspired by this poem, we suggest several ways to relate with Scripture.

Some tips for personal prayer which you may find helpful to accompany you this coming weekend are given below:




There will be no new post next week and the week after next. You may therefore spread these various tips far beyond this weekend.

You may also wish to go back to previous proposals, relating to an essay, The Mass on the World, written by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest, a theologian and a palaeontologist, whilst he was working as part of a team in palaeontological fieldwork in the Ordos desert, a barren landscape, west of Peking, near the border with Inner Mongolia:


“You know me, Lord, you see me, you probe my heart, which is close to yours” (Jr 12, 3)
