A Prayer for Global Solidarity
O Creator, Our world is large, and yet the global community is so fragile. We glimpse the needs of our sisters and brothers, and those needs are great. We want to turn away, but you call us back. We want simple solutions, but you want us to help solve the complex problems. Through your Church, you call us to listen, to learn, to reflect and to act. Give us a deep sense of our place in this web of Creation. Give us the wisdom of mind and generosity of heart to seek your will in the world today. Inspire us to respond to the call to live in solidarity with impoverished countries of the world, so that all children of God might live in dignity and peace.
Care for the Immigrant & Refugee – Wonder what you can do to show concern for immigrants and refugees? Our St. Benedict’s Immigrant Refugee Focus Group (IRFG) is also concerned about immigrants and refugees in our country上海快3开奖结果 and throughout the world. We study and discuss the Church’s positions on immigration. And, we pray about this important and timely issue, too. Please, join our prayer and our conversation!
