Prayer

"Prayer, as a means of drawing ever new strength from Christ, is concretely and urgently needed. People who pray are not wasting their time, even if a situation appears desperate and seems to call for action alone ... In the example of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta we have a clear illustration of the fact that time devoted to God in prayer not only does not detract from effective and loving service to our neighbour but is in fact the inexhaustible source of that service. In her letter for Lent 1996, Blessed Teresa wrote to her lay co-workers: “We need this deep connection with God in our daily life. How can we obtain it? By prayer”. Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est, 36.
The churches of Saggart and Rathcoole are open all day. You are more than welcome to spend a quiet time in the presence of God.

Or you may wish to join others who take some time every Friday evening at 7.30 pm in Rathcoole in Eucharistic Adoration.
