·                    God sees the heart and its fluctuations. He judges us on the love of our lives and our efforts to love.  In the evening of life God sees not just what we did but the heart of goodness by which we lived.

·                    A practical way of letting the good flow is to be grateful.  On any day we can always think of something to be thankful for.  In thanks, the spirit of joy and blessing flow into us and through us.

The archbishop’s monthly prayer intentions: August 2015

« That, coming out of our shells, we approach those who are in the outskirts when it comes to human and social relations. »

 Reflection: Western society is geared more towards how we look than who we are. We judge other people by what they are worth, or what they have accomplished, instead of by who they really are. We exclude many who live on the edge of our world. We are called to live together. Many community organizations work to join up with those who live on the edge. How can I, individually or collectively, get involved in this project?


Our faith response: From the first day of its foundation, the Christian Church, following Jesus’ example, has organized itself to invite into its fold those who were living on the edge. Think of the call for deacons in Chapter 6 of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus, by his actions, has given us many examples: the adulteress, the Samaritan woman, the man born blind, the young rich man, etc… In these meetings, Jesus went out of his comfort zone to offer help to those who needed it. Today, Pope Francis invites us, following Jesus and Church tradition, to join up with people living on the edge. He writes : « Every Christian and every community will discern what road our Lord asks us to follow, but we are all invited to answer that call : to come out of our comfort zone, and have the courage to visit those on the outskirts who need to receive the Light of the Gospel.»1 What, as a Christian community, can we do for those living on the periphery?

Question we need to ask ourselves

I decide to get involved in a community organization, so as to live my Christian faith, in words and in actions, in the outskirts.
