Sermon Notes:

Quote from Catherine Doherty, lay Catholic social worker and founder of the Madonna House Apostolate, Combermere, ON:

The essence of prayer is to hear the voice of another, of Christ, but likewise to hear the voice of each person I meet in whom Christ also addresses me. His voice comes to be me in every human voice, and his face is infinitely varied… God became incarnate so that man might contemplate his face in every face. Perfect prayer seeks this presence of Christ and recognizes it in every human face. … every human face is an ikon of Christ, discovered by a prayerful person.
