Nightfever at Sacred Heart - Nightfever is an amazing initiative and will be taking place in our city THIS THURSDAY at Sacred Heart Church. The evening will begin with Mass at 6pm after which members of the public will be invited to light a candle in the Church. If you haven't been to this before, I highly recommend it as it's normally a very powerful evening. A group of students will be going and you are very welcome to join them (contact Cathsoc on Facebook).  


School of the Annunciation are running a number of courses in Theology and Philosophy next year. For details of the courses they offer visit the website: www.sota-edu.com 

 

Catholic Parliamentary Internship – The Catholic Parliamentary Internship scheme provides up to eight Catholic graduates with experience of political and social action in a spiritual context. Interns are placed with Christian MPs at Westminster and in public policy and social action roles at the Catholic Education Service (CES), CAFOD, and CSAN. This is a great opportunity for individuals to explore politics as well as the Church’s involvement in social action. Interns will have spiritual guidance (including retreats) and will also complete the first year of a part-time MA in Catholic Social Teaching at St Mary’s university. Over the past few years we’ve had several students from the Chaplaincy taking part in this programme and all have very much enjoyed the experience. For more information see the dedicated website: http://faithinpolitics.org.uk/  

 

The annual SPUC Pro-life Youth Conference 2019 is the biggest pro-life youth conference in the UK and is a great opportunity to receive pro-life formation from experts in various fields of the pro-life movement. The conference will run from Friday 15 March -  Sun 17 March in Milton Keynes. The cost is £15 (or early bird price of £100 for those who book before 31st December). Bookings can be made online: www.spuc.org.uk/yc201

 

Ask a Theologian: This week's question: I’ve heard that the Luminous Mysteries are a relatively new addition to the Rosary and wondered what days of the week the mysteries of the rosary occurred before the introduction of the Luminous Mysteries.

The Luminous mysteries (or mysteries of Light) were recommended by Pope John Paul II in his apostolic letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae (2002) as an additional set to be said on Thursdays. Pope John Paul II proposed the additional Luminous Mysteries because the rosary is a ‘compendium of the Gospel’ orientated to the ‘contemplation of Christ’s face’ through Mary’s eyes. Previously, there had been no reflection on Christ’s public mystery and the Luminous Mysteries sought to offer a focus on the decisive moments in Christ’s public life. Prior to the introduction of the Luminous Mysteries, the order was as follows: Joyful -  Mondays and Thursdays, Sorrowful - Tuesdays and Fridays, Glorious -  Wednesday and Saturdays. The Mysteries of the rosary changed on a Sunday depending on the season. The Joyful Mysteries were said during Advent and Christmas. Throughout Easter and during Ordinary Time, the Glorious Mysteries were recited on Sundays. It was the custom to only pray the Sorrowful Mysteries during the season of Lent, regardless of the day of the week.
