Renewal of Mind and Heart
Scriptural Spirituality Today
The three of us retired at the end of 2019. We knew it was time when Fr. Mike and I reached 80 years of age. Sr Joan is much younger!! We still love itinerant preaching and feel we have fulfilled a purpose. We would have loved to pass the organisation, Thomas More Center on to others, but there is no one willing to take it on. Our team has been a unique: a community – mixed gender and mixed religious orders, with Joan being Franciscan and Mike and I being Dominican. We have traveled a great deal and met many people of faith. Our talks have come out of many conversations with these people. We have also worked with bishops, priests, sisters as well as parish and school staffs. They have all impressed us with their devoted faith, love and commitment to ministry. They have also been our teachers.
Our talk topics provide a depth of faith which will help those struggling to believe, those wanting to improve their store of knowledge, those who are looking for devotional material and those looking for a meditative way of praying. The Dominican Order has a motto: “To share with others the fruits of contemplation.” This has been our life long attempt at fulfilling that motto.
We are proud to be Vatican II Catholics, lucky to have been trained in that tradition, and to have found Pope Francis and his teaching before we retire. So much of what he teaches is what we believe to be the Way of the Church for the future. It is summed up by saying we are committed to preaching the Mercy of God, and the importance of preserving and sharing God’s Creation.
Please pray for us and those who have worked with us.
We are pleased to be able to offer these digital audio versions of our talks.
Also please visit the Dominican daily homily site. All three of us record audio homilies each month for this site.
