Weekly Prayer

Christians consider the season of Lent as a time to Fast from certain things and to Feast on others.
This lent we could attempt to:
Fast from hate; feast on love

Time to make the desert journey
and renew our way to life.
Time for testing and for changing.
Time to trust the word of God.
Time for forgiveness and for healing
and to rebuild out broken lives.
Time to turn our lives again to God
and to transform our world with love.

Catholic Social Teaching

The Catholic social teaching principle of human dignity is about understanding that each of us is made in God’s image. Every person has an innate human dignity no one can take away.

The Catholic social teaching principle of solidarity is about recognising others as our brothers and sisters and actively working for their good. In our connected humanity, we are invited to build relationships - to understand what life is like for others who are different from us.

Commitment to the common good means respecting the rights and responsibilities of all people. No one should miss out on the opportunity to grow and fulfil their potential.

What individuals can accomplish by their own initiative and efforts should
not be taken from them by a higher authority.
