Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

You must wake up now: the night is almost over, it will be daylight soon. Let us give up all the things we prefer to do under cover of the dark; let us arm ourselves and appear in the light. Let us live decently as people do in the daytime.

Romans 13:11,12-13

A Thought for Today

Drink Christ because he is the vine; drink Christ because he is the rock that poured out water. Drink Christ because he is the foundation of life; drink Christ because he is the river whose running waters give joy to the city of God, and because he is peace, and because out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Drink Christ to drink the blood which redeemed you; drink Christ to drink his words.

St Ambrose of Milan (c. 340-397)
