A Universal Faith

One of the great joys of being Catholic is that it draws us into a worldwide community of faith. Throughout the world hundreds of millions of people come together each Sunday to hear the same readings and pray the same prayers, in their own language or in the languages of the Church's liturgy. Earlier this week we were sent these pictures from a church in a village in Slovakia, in response to the recent posting showing Exposition on the day of the Dedication (see here). All the elements are recognisable: our faith and its symbols know no territorial boundaries. Thanks to Maria for sending these pictures to us.
