Even when we are in the abyss of darkness and sin, God is still there… waiting for us to call to Him. And when we see the people He sends, we may be surprised – that the very people we once thought little of, are the arms and feet of our Lord Jesus Christ, runningContinue reading “Even in the abyss, God called to me”
When we have been away from the Church for so long, it is actually hard to make that initial step back.
But God is always calling to us, and waiting with open arms. He doesn’t forget about us.
And when we are ready to run towards Him, His arms are open wide.
Sometimes when we are sitting in the pews on Sundays, we may feel lukewarm about our faith, or seem lost, or even out of touch with what is going on at Mass.
How can we rediscover that spark in our faith lives, and experience the love of God, the Father?
“One Sunday, I told my mum – the person I respect the most in my life and whom I always listen to: “This is the last Sunday I’m coming to Church with you.” Even though I attended Mass, Jesus wasn’t in my life and I couldn’t be less bothered by that. I was working likeContinue reading “Edris”
“I left the Church when I started work. That was a stressful time and it was easy to choose enjoying my weekends over keeping a relationship with a God I didn’t connect with. 10 years went by, with just an occasional Christmas Mass attendance from me.

So I brought it here. I understand the Landings mission because I had been away from Church before – when the worldContinue reading “Tony”
“I didn’t feel guilty at all when I eventually left the Church and stayed out for 10 years, because I really didn’t have any sense of God existing at all. To me, the whole faith thing was a fairytale people tell themselves to feel better. I accept that bad things happen – that’s life. IContinue reading “Augustine”
“When my friend first talked to me about joining Landings, I said no. It didn’t fit into my work schedule. A part of me missed the Latin Mass that I used to attend but I didn’t enjoy planning my weekends around Mass. But God had started calling. Eventually, I left my job to backpack. OnContinue reading “Therese”
“Seven years ago, I met my girlfriend who brought me to the Catholic Church. Two years ago, I got baptized but all along, I had never fully believed in God. I found no answers in what I had difficulty believing in. My priorities were: money, career and personal time. I worked really hard for themContinue reading “Herman”
