Live Simply - Thought for the week...

Pope Francis: do you want to fast this Lent? Fast from hurting words and say kind words.  Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.  Fast from anger and be filled with patience.

Pope Francis - "Fratelli Tutti" - On Fraternity and Social Friendship

Essential reading for Catholics...

Laudato Si'

On care for our common home...

laudato-siNever before was a Papal letter more enthusiastically received by other Christian Churches, other religions, politicians, scientists, believers and non-believers alike than Pope Francis’ letter on creation, “Laudato si”.  It is a challenging read at 189 pages but is clearly written and has a message that we should all try to absorb. Explains why the Church is keen to embrace the principles of  conservation and recognition of the challenges of climate change. Our parish has an active group that concerns itself with this and strives to involve all the parish in meeting these challenges.
