Spiritual reflection for September

A new spiritual reflection is available in the "Spirituality" section.

Reflect on the following in light of the family, home, neighbourhood, parish, city, region, province, country and finally the world preferably in a conference/council setting. Share and discuss your thoughts and insights perhaps this may lead to new ways of rendering service and ultimately to systemic change.

Allow The Lord to speak to you from outside the box of conventional wisdom and traditional thought with regards to the standard secular definition and understanding of what is hunger, thirst, alienation, nakedness, sickness and imprisonment and the consequent solutions thereof. Be open to a completely new approach quite at odds with the way man usually evaluates these things.

On Being Good Stewards

From the very beginning the Society has relied on Providence to provide the funds and resources required to serve our poor, distressed, marginalized and forgotten neighbours.
It is through the benevolence of our benefactors that we are privileged to serve those neighbours in need regardless of their source of suffering. As such we carry out the work of the Lord trusting that he will provide the necessary resources.
