ST THOMAS AQUINAS WEEKEND NOVEMBER 2016: A PERSONAL REFLECTION ON THREE TALKS AND A SERMON GIVEN BY FR.SIMON GAINE O.P
|Ten of us gathered in the lecture room at St Dominic’s Convent, Stone on Saturday November 26 to hear Fr.Simon Gaine O.P., speak on the wisdom of Our Lord and the sources of his knowledge. We hoped thereby to deepen our Faith in and love of our Saviour. In view of the difficulties of this topic, we were urged to keep in the front of our minds the Divine Person we would be talking about and the help of the Holy Spirit we needed to understand him better.|

On Saturday October 29th the parish of Our Lady and the Angels and St Peter-in-Chains, Hartshill, Stoke-on-Trent, held a reflective day on Sts. Dominic and Catherine of Sienna, given by Elizabeth Rees a well known author of books on Celtic spirituality.
Our day started with our being warmly welcomed by the parish priest, Fr. Michael Miners and his Deacon, Tony Bradshaw, into their warm and recently renovated church which looked lovely with its many statues of Dominican saints. The celebration of Holy Mass followed at 10 am, which gave us a good start to the day.

If you were producing a film, and wanted to convey that the central characters were Catholic, one of the easiest ways of doing so would be to show a shot of a picture on the wall of the family home, depicting a long-haired, bearded man in a red cloak, with a stylised heart visible on his white tunic; a heart which, on closer examination, would most likely prove to be surrounded with flames and adorned with a crown of thorns. The imagery of the Sacred Heart, in other words is easily recognisable as a “Catholic thing”, along with rosary beads, for instance, or crucifixes.
