Over time we have lost some valued volunteers who have sustained the shop. So we are now in the position of needing some reliable people who are willing to cover either of the Monday to Friday slots of 10am til 1pm or 1 til 4pm.
Duties include; dealing with the public, handling money, keeping the shop clean and tidy, replenishing stock, opening and closing the shop.
Please contact the office if you feel you can help on 0141 4332680

Born in 1579, John Ogilvie belonged to Scottish nobility. Raised a Calvinist, he was educated on the continent. Exposed to the religious controversies of his day and impressed with the faith of the martyrs, he decided to become a Catholic. In 1596, at age seventeen he was received into the Church at Louvain. Later John attended a variety of Catholiceducational institutions, and eventually he sought admission into the Jesuits. He was ordained at Parisin 1610 and asked to be sent to Scotland, hoping some Catholic nobles there would aid him given his lineage. Finding none, he went to London, then back to Paris, and finally returned to Scotland. John’s work was quite successful in bring back many people to the Faith. Some time later he was betrayed by one posing as a Catholic. After his arrest he was tortured in prison in an effort to get him to reveal the names of other Catholics, but he refused. After three trials, John was convicted of high treason because he converted Protestants to the Catholic Faith as well as denied the king’s spiritual jurisdiction by upholding the Pope’s spiritual primacy and condemning the oaths of supremacy and allegiance. Sentenced to death, the courageous priest was hanged at Glasgow cross in 1615 at the age of thirty-six.

Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household, once explained it this way:
“A mother . . . goes home and begins her day made up of a thousand little things. Her life is literally reduced to crumbs, but what she does is no little thing: It is Eucharist with Jesus! A religious sister . . . goes to her daily work among the old, the sick, the children. Her life too might seem split by many small things that leave no trace at night—another day wasted. But her life too is Eucharist. . . . No one should say, ‘What use is my life? What am I doing in this world?’ You are in the world for the most sublime of reasons, to be a living sacrifice. To be Eucharist with Jesus.”

Some people think that having a disability stops children and adults living a full life. It would be better if their mum’s aborted them to save them suffering discrimination and hurt.
Again and again, in fact on countless times we are shown that children and adults with severe disabilities achieve amazing things with their lives. As with every unique human being, their potential is endless.
Meet Jamir, who decided after seeing his sister master the piano, that he too would like to play an instrument. So he chose the trumpet and together with his teacher has learnt to play the trumpet. With his feet. He has no arms.
How many examples do we need to demonstrate to us that we cannot know what can be achieved in life. Only God knows. What we do know is if we snuff out the lives of children yet to be born simply because they have a disability, they will achieve nothing on this earth.
The joyful, thriving lives of people like Jamir Wallace and Toney Melendez, however, fly in the face of this unfair stereotype. Disabilities did not prevent Melendez or Wallace from achieving happiness, or even from mastering musical instruments to which many people with arms do not have the wherewithal to dedicate themselves. Nevertheless, the abortion lobby tragically and consistently promotes an ethic that devalues their lives.

Last night, actor Jared Leto received the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the movie, Dallas Buyers Club.
In his acceptance speech, Leto, perhaps inadvertently, made the case for life when one finds herself pregnant at an inopportune time:
In 1971, in Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother, and she’s here tonight. I just want to say, “I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.”

In case we don’t already realise; a baby knows it’s mother, intimately, from the moment they meet at birth. This intimate connection doesn’t need words because the child has been connected to it’s mother from the moment of conception. This baby wants to be next to it’s mother, skin to skin and calms down as soon as it feels it’s mother. Beautiful!

“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.”
-C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
For decades, prochoice advocates have insisted there’s no “slippery slope” to abortion, that the right to end your child’s life in the womb will never lead to your right to end it outside of the womb.
Last week, Belgium legalized the euthanization of children. The country’s leaders passed the law despite overwhelming evidence that adult euthanasia (allowed since 2002) is widely abused, with multiple studies proving that a full third of people euthanized in Belgium don’t even request to died
