“I love my old Bible – it has seen my triumphs and been wet with my tears. It is my most prized possession.”

“Prayerful study of the word of God is a way of life for us missionary disciples today.”

“There is no greater joy than discovering your place in God’s big picture and this exciting new course will help you do just that!”

Pope Francis, 2015

“I want to encourage everyone to participate in this course because, many years ago, a similar course changed my life.”

“The Big Picture Course will really help you to come to a deep and personal appreciation of the Bible.”

“Pope Francis tells us, 'The Father never ceased to show, in various ways throughout history, his divine nature.' The Big Picture Course is an ideal opportunity to reflect on and to respond to the mysteries of the Father's mercy.”

We advertised our course in the bulletin, handed out the A5 flyers which we had printed and had people praying. The Parish Priest encouraged parishioners to grab the opportunity and we worked hard with personal invitations. 20 people booked on the course ordering books at the end of Mass. 37 turned up on the night (good job we had extra books), now 63 are on the course and it is going really well with a great buzz in the sharing groups.

We would like to thank you all for this wonderful course, The Big Picture. We recently used it for our convent Lenten Retreat and found it so accessible, the interactivity and sharing so fruitful. 5 stars and more!!!

We can’t remember a course that the Community have enjoyed so much and got so much out of than this; the layout, the material have met such a good and fine balance. It really seems this is one of a kind. This course is life giving on a level that really matters.

It is a very good follow-up course to the Gift, and I am recommending it to others. It is so good to have this resource as a follow–up course to Life in the Spirit courses.

Thank you very much.

Being unable to complete the daily digging every single day has not prevented some of our people from joining in with the sharing time.  Waiting for the others to finish speaking allows us the time to prepare our contribution which has proven no less valuable than any other. It has really relaxed people to know that they are not falling behind if the busyness of life has prevented some daily prayer times.
