Catholic Social thought for the Week

17 February         Nearest Sunday to World Day of Social Justice (20 Feb))

God is not indifferent. He does not look away from our human pain. The God of mercy responds and takes care of the poor, of those who cry out in desperation. God listens and intervenes in order to save, raising men able to hear the groan of suffering and to work in favour of the oppressed.

                          Pope Francis, General Audience, 26 January 2016

Walking Together with Jesus – This is a significant new initiative for our deanery and it will take place for six weeks during Lent. We aim to have as many small groups as possible meeting for each of the six weeks of Lent at times suitable to the group. Each day of Lent will have its own material for reflection and prayer with weekly meetings of around one hour and a half to share whatever has arisen from the previous week’s prayer.

Please consider taking part and making this programme a part of your observance of Lent. Some examples of the material that will be used are available at the back of the church for you to look at.   (Please do not take these away for now.)  Sign up sheets will be available in due course. Please come to the information evening to help launch this initiative. This will take place in St Paul’s,  Shettleston on Monday 18th February at 7.30pm. All Welcome

40 Days for Life: What are you doing for Lent? Will you come and pray one hour with us each week this Lent to pray for a culture of life in Scotland? 40 Days for Life is a growing grassroots prolife lay movement which seeks to replace the culture of death with a culture of life. 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the implementation of abortion in the UK. During this time the UK has aborted 9 million babies.  Half a million of these babies have been Scottish children (Source: ISD Online) Abortion is the leading individual cause of death around the world.  In his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (Gospel of Life) Pope St John Paul 11 wrote ‘To defend and promote life, to show reverence and love for it, is a task which God entrusts to every man’ EV para 42 ‘What is urgently called for is a general mobilisation of consciences and a united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life. All together, we must build a new culture of life: EV para 95. To join the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil email Ogilvie2019@outlook.com . 40 Days for Life stands in prayerful solidarity with all of the women, men and children whose lives have been damaged/taken by abortion.
