No Prayers for Reconciliation and Healing of Racism this week – December 8, 2017 – due to the Holy Day Mass at 12:15 PM at the Cathedral. We hope to see you there.
Today is National Day of Action for the Dreamers – Please consider this Message from the 51st World Day of Peace from Pope Francis:
“We must also turn this contemplative gaze to the cities where we live, ‘a gaze of faith which sees God dwelling in their houses, in their streets and squares . . .’ When we turn that gaze to migrants and refugees, we discover that they do not arrive empty-handed. They bring their courage, skills, energy and aspirations, as well as the treasures of their own cultures; and in this way, they enrich the lives of the nations that receive them. . . . A contemplative gaze should also guide the discernment of those responsible for the public good, and encourage them to pursue policies of welcome, ‘within the limits allowed by a correct understanding of the common good’– bearing in mind, that is, the needs of all members of the human family and the welfare of each.”
Blessings as you continue to anticipate the coming of the Light during this holy season of Advent.
Join us in person at the Cathedral Fridays at 12:15 PM for this 30 minute communal contemplative prayer with the intention of reconciling and healing racism in our city.
Feel free to pray privately wherever you are in solidarity with those gathered at the Cathedral if you are not able to join in person.
