One thought on “Reflection

  1. Hi Abbey, thanks for posting these reflections. Not sure who told you about Holy Orders, marriage and anointing of the sick, but I think they may have left out a bit of information about the origins of these sacraments and what they mean to Catholics. (also the word is ‘monk’ not ‘munk’) The statistics about marriage and divorce in the UK are interesting but maybe you could compare to Australian figures.
