As people begin to take holidays over the coming weeks, you may find yourself with a little more time to sit and pray, to reflect on the past number of months, to allow yourself be nourished and renewed. Here are some reflection sites and virtual happenings that might be of interest over the coming months:
- My Prayer Life
- Reflections on faith from Manresa House of Spirituality, Dublin
- Lough Derg pilgrimage
- Prayer Tools
- Prayer and reflection resources from Global Catholic Climate Movement
- Knock Shrine
Thinking of getting out in nature this summer? Why not walk the pilgrim paths?

Lord, we delight in the beauty of nature,
the lush feel of the grass,
the different greens of hill and dale,
savouring the silence
and the majesty of the mountains.
We are filled with wonder at your creation.
Often our prayer is a silent gasp of awe,
a breath of amazement….
at other times, we want to touch and feel the beauty
that we experience around us…
yet again, we find ourselves humming a line of a hymn,
How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings Good News!
Touch our hearts with the beauty of the world you have created!
Attune our spirits to your energy alive in our lives!
Let us praise you today and each day.
