Spiritual director Dr McFadyen grows a sunflower blog

Dr Margaret-Mary McFadyen, the diocesan representative to the Bishops Conference Spirituality Committee, is developing a blog to encourage people on their spiritual journey.

She has named the blog Sunflower Seeds Spirituality. The latest post, inspired by Julian of Norwich, explores the image of God as Mother, and draws on St Ignatius, as well as referencing the Book of Hosea and the Psalms.
