Help RefugeesWaking up Ireland

Since the publication of that terrible photograph of the lifeless three year old Aylan Kurdi washed up on the shores of Turkey’s fashionable resort town of Bodrum, Europe is stepping up its response to this humanitarian tragedy.  And people across Ireland are responding too and in very practical ways.

Our Churches as well will play an important role in raising awareness and responding practically.

The Irish Episcopal Council for Immigrants will meet this week to prepare a statement and to discuss responses for the pastoral and spiritual care of immigrants.  What can we do?  The parish of St Francis Xavier’s can do something ….what?


Please think about this and offer your suggestions.

Pope Francis to his hundredth general audience

Pope Francis posed a question to Christians around the world: Do you still think of God as someone who loves you? If we remember to pause in wonder at God's love, the pontiff said, we will remember to pray

JOSHUA J. MCELWEE
VATICAN CITY

Pope Francis on Wednesday posed a deep and moving question to Christian families around the world: Do you think of God only as an omnipotent being, the supreme judge of the world? Or do you consider God also someone who loves you, even offering a gentle caress in times of hardship? 

While the creator has both aspects, thinking often of the second helps us grow in our faith and prayer lives, Francis told crowds at his weekly general audience.

“Do we come to think of God like the caress that grasps us in life, before which there is nothing?” the pontiff asked crowds in St. Peter’s Square. “A caress from which nothing, not even death, can separate us?” 

“Or do we think of God only as the great Being, the Omnipotent that has made everything, the Judge that monitors every action?” the pope continued.

“Only when God is the love of all our loves, the meaning of these words becomes full,” said Francis. “So now we feel happy, and even a bit confused, because He thinks of us and, most of all, loves us!”

“Isn’t this tremendous?” the pope asked the thousands in the Square. “Isn’t it tremendous that God caresses us with the love of a father? It is so beautiful, so beautiful!”

“He could simply have come to know us as the Supreme Being, giving his commandments and waiting for the results,” the pontiff said. “Instead, God has made and makes infinitely more than this. He accompanies us in the path of life, he protects us, and he loves us.”separator
