Death and Resurrection - a reflection and guide in meditation John Main OSB, MOMENT OF CHRIST (New York: Continuum, 1998), pp. 68-69
05 January 2021
St Benedict told his monks, 'Always keep death before your eyes.' We don't talk much about death in the modern world. But what the whole Christian tradition tells us is that if we would become wise we must learn the lesson that we have here 'no abiding city.' [We must hear] what the wise of ages past and present say to us: to have life in focus we must have death in [focus. . .]. Talking about death is hard for the worldly to understand. Indeed the principal fantasy of much worldliness operates out of completely the opposite point of view: not the wisdom of our own mortality but the pure fantasy that we are immortal, beyond physical weakness.

A Prayer for Christmas Marist Laity Australia
25 December 2020
The Angels were sign posts who gave directions for the Shepherds to find the baby God. God appeared as a fragile baby, not like the Greek or Roman God’s Thor or Odin who came with power and bolts of lightning. God appears in the unexpected simple child. For most people the child would have looked and acted like any other baby. Yet, the Angels were given a direction which revealed to them the deeper understanding of who the child was.
 
Can prayer be a satisfying experience? Father John Thornhill SM
23 December 2020
There are many difficulties when people pray. Like when the children have gone to school or like just before we arrive at work. We try and find a point to pray. On the first day, we can pray easily. On the second day, we repeat the first day. The third day our abilities to pray tapers off. On the fourth day we find it very hard. We feel alone.
 
Liturgy for the Fourth Sunday of Advent Marist Laity Australia
20 December 2020
Mary was a 13 or 14-year-old girl when the angel invited her to bear God’s son. From an outsider's perspective in the Jewish culture 2024 years ago, it would seem that Mary has committed a great sin. However, God works his most wonderful miracle through what would seem as a sin, in a poor and unmarried girl.
