This week begins the annual week of Christians around the world observing the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This observance has been observed for more than 100 years as it calls for each one of us as Catholics, this year, to meditate and pray upon the theme: “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit.”
Perhaps there is no other time this vicious than this time of political infighting, viral attacks and finger pointing. As I listened to the impeachment debates, I am unsettled by most politicians…even those in the Church. It makes me long more and more for a small country parish in the middle of nowhere where the only “politicking” would be between two parishioners vying for their choice of menu to a group meeting!
This has been a tough year and will go on for some time. Let us just say a prayer today for renewed unity in faith, freedom and family.
Spiritual Reflection: “Where do you see Christ in the political workings of our nation?”
Blessings of love,
