A SIMPLE AGAPE MEAL

Father Mark has written a simple Agape service which you might like to use in your own home. The Agape dates back to the early church and these communal meals are reflected in scripture, for example in 1 Corinthians 11:17–34 where St Paul explains how the meal should proceed.

During this time, when we are sadly not able to attend the Easter Triduum, you might like instead to engage with this, as away of praying together at home.

14 MOST BEAUTIFUL CATHOLIC CATHEDRALS

This short YouTube video suggested for the website by Sarah Barreto, features 14 of the most beautiful Catholic cathedrals and churches in the world. If we can all be as inspired as those who created these most beautiful places of worship.

A possible candidate suggest for ‘number 15’ on the list, is the large 14th-century cathedral dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary situated in the town of Orvieto in Umbria, central Italy. This cathedral has a most spectacularly beautiful gilded facade, contains a wonderful fresco cycle by Luca Signorelli, and is location in the heart of what is just a small cliff-top Italian town.
