By on 09-Jul-12 22:03.

Tags:

Archbishop Bernard Longley presided and preached at Solemn Vespers in the chapel of St Mary’s College, Oscott, at the start of Invocation 2012, the Third Youth International Discernment Festival, yesterday evening, Friday, 6 July. Archbishop Longley said: “Be still. Our modern word ‘still’, or ‘stillness’, has its roots in a very old English verb ‘stillan’ which means in a literal sense to be ‘fixed’ or to ‘stand’. We might at first think that being still simply means being quiet, or motionless; but this is a rather passive understanding of stillness. In a deeper, more active sense, being still is also about being firm, being strong in our faith and in being at home with ourselves, in our body, and in our soul.”
