9.30am Morning Prayer
Morning prayer is intended and arranged to sanctify the morning. St. Basil the Great gives an excellent description of this character in these words: "It is said in the morning in order that the first stirrings of our mind and will may be consecrated to God and that we may take nothing in hand until we have been gladdened by the thought of God, as it is written: 'I was mindful of God and was glad' (Ps 77:4)."
The Decade of the Rosary
10.00am Chris Fitz - A Holy Family: God is calling are we listening?
Chris is one of our cradle Maltfriscans who works as a lay chaplain to four Catholic schools in the High Peak. He is an accomplished musician, a proud Yorkshire man and has a passion for worship & liturgy. In this video he will explore with us some of his own reflections and thoughts on how can be inspired by the holy family and answer Gods call in our own lives.
1.30pm Coffee & catch up
A social drop-in with no agenda to touch base and have a catch-up.At 2pm a group will split off for discussions on the morning's input (please join before 2 to be part of this group discussion).
2.00pm Reconciliation Reflection
During our physical week together we always take time to be together and share the love of the Father through our reconciliation service. This year David OC has created a short reflection on PowerPoint for us to use. We take time to remember we are held in the love of the Father regardless of our failings.
Please be patient as it downloads.
3.00pm Mass LIVE from the North
5.30pm Evening Prayer (Vespers)
Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfils Jesus' command to "pray always" (Luke 18:1; see also 1 Thessalonians 5:17). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.
Lectio Divina is a Latin term which means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. The Word of God is alive and active and will transform each of us if we open ourselves to receive what God wants to give us.
8.00pm Extra Business Session
This ZOOM is for the Committed Members of the Maltfriscan Community.This year our business session will look very different. All Committed adult Maltfriscans are asked to try and make this time available as best they can. This is the Supreme Council where any decisions and votes that need to happen will take place. Please make sure you have read the supporting documents that were in the last Bripper before the meeting.
9.30pm Night Prayer
Night prayer is the last prayer of the day, said before we head to bed. The Psalms that are chosen for Night Prayer are full of confidence in the Lord. As children of the promise we gather in that confidence and end our day together. After night prayer each night a social time will continue for anyone who would like to grab a drink and stay on the call.
* These zooms will be recorded and available for those unable to attend 2 hours after the LIVE session. Please ensure your camera is switched off in these sessions if you do not wish to be recorded.
