The Final Commission ...to be continued

The idea of providing a space for prayer, hints for reflection and brief meditations on the Word of God, is prompted by our desire to offer help to those who feel inspired to accept the invitation made by Jesus our Lord to enter their room and pray to God the Father 'in secrety' (intimacy) (see Mt 6:6) and to encourage them to cherish moments of silence and quiet recollection. Besides, we wish to offer useful material for community celebrations. We start with something very simple, but we intend to keep it up by following liturgical seasons and Feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
