We wrote to Kairos Communications over the summer asking if there was any possibility that they could help us with the putting together of a video for Youtube that would capture the essence of the song. We received a positive reply almost immediately and shortly after Fr. Finbarr came to visit to discuss possibilities.
We are very grateful to Fr. Finbarr, Seamus and Sebastien and the team at Kairos for the beautiful visual prayer space they have created. It will be available for viewing on YouTube from October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis.

Are we not perhaps all afraid in some way? If we let Christ enter fully into our lives, if we open ourselves totally to him, are we not afraid that he might take something away from us? Are we not perhaps afraid to give up something significant, something unique, something that makes life so beautiful? Do we not then risk ending up diminished and deprived of our freedom? No! If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation. Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything.
