Contemplate - Launch Out being launched this week.

This week Archbishop Hart is starting a two year course called Contemplate - Launch Out. He explains the title in the Kairos magazine: "... We must pray and study to understand, then we are to 'launch out' in order to change the world. ..."

Tonight there is a 24 hour vigil at the Cathedral before the Mass that begins it at 1930 tomorrow.

The themes are being taken from Novo Millennio Ineunte, which the Pope wrote in 2001.

I like the emphasis on prayer the Archbishop presents in Kairos:

... We have the great prayer of the Mass; we have the daily prayer of the Church - a whole treasury in a simple volume; and we have many priests, religious and lay people who are experts in prayer and able to teach many styles and methods of prayer in our tradition. ...
