Reading I                             Numbers 11.25-29

Reading II                            James 5.1-6

·                    We never know the effects of kindness and goodness.  Even something good done for a person years ago can still be well remembered.  Somewhat like water having its effect wherever it flows, our goodness always gives life, even in the future.  These are the unremembered acts of kindness and of love.

·                    In the small things we show are love, which may be the strongest part of any love.

The archbishop’s monthly prayer intentions:


September 2015


« That the number of possibilities for job training and employment increases, for all of our young people. »


Reflection: Do the youth have a place in our society?  A lot of young people can’t find work after finishing an often very long period of studies.  The Conference of Post-Secondary Schools presented, on June 17th, 2014, the results of its 22nd survey on job insertion for young graduates.  It clearly shows how hard it is for them to integrate into a professional career, due to a difficult economic situation and a rise in unemployment.  Indeed, 70% of students who graduated in 2013 are still looking for their first real job.[1]


Our faith response: Work is a fundamental right, and a good thing for everyone, full-time employment is a necessary goal for all economic systems oriented towards justice and the common good[2].  How do we help our young people carve their place in society?  Many employers have joined the program called «Conciliation work-study» that allows young people to continue studying towards their career objective.  What can we do to encourage our youth, and give them a sense to their lives?


Questions we need to ask ourselves

I will support projects where young people are involved, either in the community, in my family, or at my workplace.
