HOLY LAND - Please find below the prayer of this week prepared by the Sisters of Our Lady of Sion Ein Karem.
Isaiah 40:1 says God asks us -“Comfort, give comfort to my people”.
"At this time of Advent, we comfort others as we ‘prepare the way of the Lord’.
Pope Francis says in Fratelli Tutti, “…Goodness, together with love, justice and solidarity, are not achieved once and for all; they have to be realized each day .......”(FT 8). We pray that we respond by creating joint efforts with our neighbours, and strangers in our midst, to demand that ‘the dignity of the human person is respected, and his or her rights are recognized and guaranteed, so that their creativity and interdependence thrive,…”(FT 18) and our planet is cared for."
