St Enoch

18Jul20

Today we celebrate the feast of one of Glasgows very own saints – St Enoch

St Enoch is not only a Glaswegian saint but also a pro-life saint.

She is known as “Scotland’s first recorded rape victim, battered woman and unmarried mother”. A princess thrown out by her father because of her pregnancy, she was rescued by St Serf, the leader of a monastery.  She not only survived in some of the most difficult circumstances but went on to raise her son to be a saint. How can we not be inspired by her strength, courage and love.

In Smug’s mural on George Street, we see a modern-day interpretation of St Enoch cradling St Mungo. Captured on an ordinary Glasgow street is the love of a mother for her child regardless of the hardship she has faced.

Thank You

13Jul20

 

We have put our time during lockdown to good use !!!

We have finally finished sorting out our downstairs storeroom!!!

There are a few people without whom this would not have been possible and so we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you.

Thank you to the Beating Heart Group from Linlithgow for their very generous donation of our lovely new shelves, in particular Angela Hughes, Eddie Love and Stephen Gallagher.

We would also like to thank the volunteers from Glasgow Students for Life for giving up a weekend to help us build the shelves pre-lockdown.

And most of all our thanks to the wonderful Lily Kearns for organising everything and giving up her time to help us make our plans for the room a reality.

 

 

 


Today we celebrate the feast of St Peter and St Paul

As we come out of lockdown and our churches begin to reopen may these two great apostles help us to continue to spread the gospel far and wide.

St Peter pray for us

St Paul pray for us

Today we celebrate the birthday of John the Baptist.

John the baptist was the first to recognise Jesus as Our Lord when they were both in the womb.

May we always recognise the how precious the life of an unborn child is.


Today we celebrate the solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

May we never be afraid to go to the Sacred Heart with any worries, fears and anxieties knowing that Jesus can calm them all.

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you, and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, Good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Protect me in the midst of danger. Comfort me in my afflictions. Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

Today marks the 19th anniversary of Cardinal Winning’s death.

In his lifetime he was a tireless advocate for the unborn child. We are honoured to carry on his legacy in our work at the initiative.

May he rest in peace.
