A prayer group with Blessed Marie-Eugene

I mentioned Blessed Marie-Eugene of the Child Jesus OCD the other day. I have just heard about a Blessed Marie-Eugene prayer group that meets each month at the Carmelite Church in High St, Kensington on a Saturday afternoon. They are in fact using the book I mentioned, St John of the Cross: a Living Flame to help them with their prayers and growth in faith. The meeting involves an introductory talk by a Carmelite priest, a period of silent prayer, and a social time. The next meeting is in fact Saturday next 11 November. Inquiries to odile.rimbert@gmail.com

It is so tempting for us to be drawn into pure activism, but St Teresa and St John of the Cross left us their writings as a standing invitation to go deeper into prayer, to make more time for prayer, alone and with others. For them (and of course it is a fundamental Catholic truth), prayer is the basis of everything.
