O God, you are my God, for you I long

While starting my morning prayer this morning I was really touched once more by Psalm 62:

O God, you are my God, for you I long;
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you
like a dry, weary land without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.

For your love is better than life,
my lips will speak your praise.
So I will bless you all my life,
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet,
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you.
On you I muse through the night
for your have been my help;
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast.


I always feel that this psalm really sums up the yearning of our hearts for God...
... something beyond words!

Also, I would like to wish all the readers of this blog a very joyfull New Year!

Happy Christmas

I just want to wish any reader of this blog a very happy Christmas!

My intention is to start to post at least on a weekly basis on this blog to give it a bit more life, and I do appoligy for the lack of activity in recent times.

The Youth 2000 retreat in Newbridge was a great success and over 500 young people participated in this great event. With a bit of luck, there will be some video footage available shortly.

Youth 2000 Christmas Retreat

For the people who visit my blog once and a while, I want to apology for the lack of activity... there are just a few small projects beside the study that take a bit of time...

I will try and take up the thread some time in the near future again!

Anyway, I just wanted to make a quick post to bring to attention the Youth 2000 Christmas retreat, which is held in Newbridge College coming weekend. As this is one of the biggest and most joyful annual Catholic youth gatherings it is a weekend to really look forward too!

Hopefully I will be able to post some impressions of the retreat afterwards!
For more information look on the Youth 2000 website!
