Message from Fr Patrick
The speed of our lives takes us away from ourselves. This poem/prayer invites us to change down a number of gears, as it were, to slow down our lives. It echoes beautifully the words of the Psalm, "Be still and know that I am God". It is in stillness, slowness and silence where we will meet God.
Fr Patrick, Assistant Priest to Fr Richard, Parish Priest (firstname.lastname@example.org)
