Autumn 2012 season Group Reflections on the faith and mission
The Year of Faith Announced by Pope Benedict XVI in October 2011 the YEAR OF FAITH will last from 11 October 2012 to 24 November 2013. Let me see your face, O Lord – Psalm 26 Plans for the Year, articles and a list of events can be found online at: issuu.com/exploringfaith/docs/thefollower_yof 1
What do you wish to gain from the Year of Faith as a parish and as individuals? What are your hopes for your small group this autumn season?
The current plan for Lent 2013 is a booklet on the themes of reconciliation, sin, penance and mercy. Autumn 2013, it is planned that we visit the theme of prayer – more than likely using the Lord’s Prayer as our framework to tie in with the Year of Faith. Future booklets

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus! Closing Prayer
Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others; the light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine: it will be You shining on others through me. Let me thus praise You in the way You love best: by shining on those around me. Let me preach You without preaching, not by words, but by my example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You. Amen. Closing Prayer
Lord, let me see your face, know your heart and experience your love in my life. Strengthen in me the precious gift of faith. I believe Lord; Help my unbelief. Amen. Closing Prayer
