MOVED WITH COMPASSION – Protecting Life

This is an article I wrote in one of my blogs in July 2013. It has been viewed 13,500 times since then – more than anything else I’ve written – so it seems worth presenting again in a time of serious violence against the individual and a time of silence on the question of abortion….

Transformed By A Spirit Of Sacrifice by Derry Murphy, sac

Reflecting on the Epiphany brings a deep appreciation of what the Church commemorates as “the first manifestation our Lord Jesus Christ made of himself to the Gentiles, the first proclamation of the Catholic faith”. These are the words of  St Vincent Pallotti (1795-1850), a Roman saint who spent his entire life ministering in the City….

I COME HERE WITH NOTHING

I’m told that priests don’t have to queue for the Baths in Lourdes but something in me resists such privilege and I go down as a civilian, taking my place with all the other men and wait. It’s easier for men than women because there are not as many of us.  It’s a very hot…

New Evangelisation And The Dying by  Sr. Maria Reginata Nühlen, SAC

New Evangelisation and the dying – a personal experience “Lord, the one whom You love is sick.” (Jn 11:3)         I have been serving in Clinic Pastoral Ministry at St. Vincent Pallotti Hospital (VPH) in Bensberg since October 1980.        During my training I became aware that I was walking in the footsteps…

UAC

I have to make a confession – as a Pallottine, I struggle with the spirituality of our Founder St. Vincent Pallotti. There are many times when I read something about his life and it just doesn’t do it for me. He doesn’t fire me up like some of the other Saints do. Yet, I know…
