Louise Zanré, Director of JRS UK, invites us to dedicate time this New Year to pray in solidarity with refugees who face the year ahead with uncertainty. This reflection first appeared in the Catholic Universe newspaper.
On Sunday we begin the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. In this week's Godtalk, Peter Knott SJ asks how our differences can actually help us focus on a more real unity. Real growth happens and real grace breaks in when we have to deal with what is different. Learn to understand, said John of the Cross, more by not understanding than by understanding. What’s dark, unfamiliar, frightening, and uninvited will stretch us in ways that the familiar and secure cannot.
