Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

From Deacon Dick

Respect Life Sunday
Prayer for Radical Solidarity

O Blessed Mother, at the angel’s word you went
in haste to the aid of your cousin Elizabeth.
Although pregnant yourself,
you placed her needs before your own.

By your example of radical solidarity,
teach us to reverence and protect those in need,
without conditions or expectations.
Ask your Son to give us unfailing determination
to witness to the profound dignity of every person,
at every stage and in every circumstance.

In that first Eucharistic procession,
you carried Jesus to Elizabeth in her time of need.
Obtain for us the grace to bring Christ
to any expectant mother who is alone and afraid.

May our support help them to find hope and strength in the Lord.

Synod: a definition

“Despite the odd-sounding words, the vision is very simple: it’s about experiencing our faith as a journey together, accompanied by Jesus and the Apostles,” writes Bishop Scharfenberger in his Evangelist column. Essentially, the Synod, as Pope Francis has outlined it, will be about mutual listening and dialoging. It will be about reflecting and journeying together. Don’t get scared off by the unusual words. (Synodality isn’t even in the dictionary!) This local synod process is simply going to be an opportunity for you to share your thoughts, your hopes and your needs as a Catholic. We want to hear from you. We want to know what you need from the Church – both local and universal – to help you on your journey of faith. Together we will take the next steps toward greater unity, greater collaboration, greater faith!
