Journey With The Pope – 16/5/2020

SATURDAY, MAY 16, 2020 

“The crisis we are facing should not make us forget the many other crises that bring suffering to so many people…Displaced people offer us this opportunity to meet the Lord, even though our eyes find it hard to recognize him: his clothing in tatters, his feet dirty, his face disfigured, his body wounded, his tongue unable to speak our language…You have to know in order to understand. Knowledge is a necessary step towards understanding others. It is necessary to be close in order to serve. It may seem obvious, yet often it is the contrary. In order to be reconciled, we need to listen. In order to grow, it is necessary to share. We need to be involved in order to promote. It is necessary to cooperate in order to build. In the present context it should be reiterated that this is not a time for self-centeredness, because the challenge we are facing is shared by all, without distinguishing between persons.”

Pope Francis 

 Saturday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Psalm 100

Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.

Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
serve the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful song.

Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.

Know that the LORD is God;
he made us, his we are;
his people, the flock he tends.

Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.

The LORD is good:
his kindness endures forever,
and his faithfulness, to all generations.

Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.

 

Blessings from Team MISSIO!
