In Hollywood movies and popular literature, we are often shown a hero as someone who, by going it alone, saves the world. But is this really what a true hero is? Peter Knott reflects in this weeks' Godtalk.
Each month, Pope Francis entrusts two particular prayer intentions to the Apostleship of Prayer, the Pope’s Prayer Network and asks the AoP to spread these intentions to Christians everywhere. Successive Popes have given this mission to the AoP, which is looked after by the Jesuits, for many years. It is for this reason that the AoP is known as the Prayer Network of the Pope; the Holy Father Francis takes a keen personal interest in this ministry.
Perhaps it was because we set out on a journey starting from Flanders that I was prompted to wonder about how a group of 5 Jesuits would have been received in Cornwall to carry out a parish mission a hundred years ago.
