TV programme featuring Fr Doyle this Wednesday 9pm

BBC 1 Northern Ireland will air a programme entitled Voices 16 – Somme this coming Wednesday at 9pm. I don’t know if it is available in other BBC regions, but it will presumably be available on the BBC iPlayer afterwards. Sadly, however, BBC is very strict in not allowing viewers in other parts of the world to watch iPlayer.

Thoughts for June 27 from Fr Willie Doyle

adoration 2

“Come in before His presence with exceeding great joy” (Ps 100:2). Yes, come before Jesus in the Blessed Eucharist with a joyous heart, for He, the bounteous giver of all good gifts, will fill it with His grace. Make haste and tarry not. He waits for your coming, as the tender mother yearns for the absent child she loves so dearly, that He may load you with His heavenly treasures, and send you away with “joy exceeding great”.
