PAUSE FOR THOUGHT

Helen Keller wrote:

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement”  We must remain optimistic, yet be ready to act when the opportunity arises in this troubled world

Pope Francis says:

“Migrants trust that they will encounter acceptance, solidarity, and help, that they will meet people who will sympathize with the distress and tragedy experienced by others, recognize the values and resources the latter have to offer, and are open to sharing humanly and materially with the needy and disadvantaged.”

Cardinal Basil Hume -The mystery of Love.

“Man is made in the image and likeness of God”. Every person with whom I come into contact is not only going to tell me something of God, but is also going to reveal something of God’s love for me. I like to think that the affection that another shows to me is a special word of love from God.It is as if every person who shows affection for me is in some way transmitting God’s love to me.

Pope Francis  “The whole world seems to be at war today, there is no justification for it” He went on to say “The world continues to make war, the world has not understood the path of peace.”

So now we must all  pray for peace-

Creator God, we wait in hope this Year for the coming of your Holy Spirit, symbol of your love for us and all creation.
Enthral us with the beauty and wonder of the natural world endangered by our greed.
Enlighten us and embolden us so that we have the courage to challenge climate injustice.
Inspire our leaders to reach out and work together to protect our  earth from the ravages of climate change.
And as creation too waits, empower us to keep alive the kernel of hope that all things will be made new.

Amen
