Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (B) - Words from Canon Niall :
Saint Oscar Romero was canonised in 2018 by Pope Francis. On one occasion when Oscar Romero was returning from abroad, an official at the airport said loudly as he passed, ‘There goes the truth.’ It is a great tribute to any Christian. As a Church, who do we speak for? Who do we really feel with? The Church has to be the dwelling place (‘In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell forever’ – today’s psalm) where suffering, injustice and the truth about human pain is allowed an honest voice to be named for what they are. Then the healing of Divine Compassion embraces the helpless, the homeless, the hopeless, the voiceless, the anguish, the agony and the self-doubt of humans. The Catholic Church here in England with the Universal Church is left with questions that challenge us all: ‘Whose is the voice you speak with? Whose needs do you speak for? What truth do you embody?’ ‘Feeling with the Church’ – can we make it more than a pious aspiration?
Have a Blessed week.
Thresholds of Hope : the Vicariate for Adult Formation - another wonderful tool when proclaiming the good news of God's grace to all. St John Henry Newman believed that the lay faithful were to take a full part in the life of the Church, to be confident in expressing their Catholic Faith and willing to share its beauty with others. Hope you find this resource useful; more here https://thresholdsofhope.co.uk/
Please also continue with your prayers for all who are part of the NHS, that the Lord gives them protection and continued safety with the demands on their dedication and healing. See Pope Francis’ Rosary Prayers for Protection from Coronavirus
