The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness. As we enter Holy Week we recall that in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, we are redeemed. Humanity and the whole of creation share in this grace filled action of God. Because of this we are called to care for creation as God loves, holds and sustains the work of his hands.
The earth and all it contains has been created by God. It is a gift, given to all for the good of all. The resources of the earth are not infinite. They have been given to us and to future generations. How we have treated and continue to treat the earth has profound impacts on people now and in the future. Too often we have destroyed elements of the earth for a quick gain.
Thank you for participating in this Love in Action process. If you have been moved in any way by the themes we have been looking at then on the 19th April from 7.30pm to 9pm or 5th May from 10.30am to 5pm there will be an opportunity to take part in developing our Love in Action Parish Plan, to reflect together on how our parish will respond to the needs of our parish will respond to the needs of our community having looked at the guidelines of Caritas.
Send forth your spirit O Lord and renew the face of the Earth.
Every Sunday, Mgr Jim Curry provides updates on the parish.
