For comparison/competition with Clare Hayns’s blog, TA readers may like to seek out “Biblical Babes in 40 Days” on Facebook, a splendid compilation by the three Ministry Experience interns of Hereford Diocese

I appreciated the contribution from Fr.Simon Butler – because of the reality that we are all sinners in need of redemption – on a daily basis. One good reason for the Daily Mass, where we confess our human need of God, who presences Christ with us in the Sacrament. The problem comes when we think that we are ‘not like that sinner over there’ (the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican). “There, but for the grace of God, go I!”
Jesu, mercy. Mary, pray.
