Days 23–28: Monday 20 – Saturday 25 March:

About believing

We begin with Karl Barth (1886–1968) as he begins his book Credo with some thoughts on how believing comes about. Then we share two stories of personal belief. They are both from literary Englishmen, but are quite different.

Saturday this week is 25 March—the Feast of the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary. For this we share a short reflection by Basil Pennington OCSO (1931–2005).
