As we continue the Easter journey through these weeks, the Assumption Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation Team brings you some news and inspiration.
'In the Christian understanding of the world the destiny of all creation is bound up with the mystery of Christ,' Pope Francis (Laudato Si). For 'all things have been created through him and for him' (Col 1. 16). Indeed the whole world can be considered a sacrament... and there is great suffering in our world, hunger, violence, species loss, injustice. As we accompany in our small way, that great journey of Paschaltide, let us not lose hope. For we have a reason for our hope! Alleluia!
