We are open to QUESTIONS

“A Catholic is a person who has plucked up the courage to face the incredible and inconceivable idea that something else may be wiser than he is”.

GK Chesterton

People have questions. Catholics have a long tradition of asking questions.

We encourage questions and we want to talk.

A prayer for our questions and uncertainty in life

Thomas Merton, "Thoughts in Solitude" © Abbey of Gethsemani

MY LORD GOD,

I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me.

I cannot know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.

And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.

And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.

I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

 

Feel free to ask question
