Share Lent 2021 – Share Lent has been a tradition in Canadian parishes since 1968. It was established to embody the two pillars of social action—charity and justice— which Pope Benedict XVI described as “not only social, but also spiritual actions, accomplished in the light of the Holy Spirit.”. Each year across Canada, the campaign tells the stories of our brothers and sisters in the Global South: stories of incredible strength, resourcefulness and courage; stories of people working together to change the unjust social, economic and political situations that hinder their integral human development. Development and Peace and its partners can accompany and support them in their quest for justice because of your support for the Share Lent campaign. This year, the campaign theme is Share Love, Share Lent. It is inspired by the message of social fraternity conveyed by Pope Francis in his latest encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. The Share Lent collection is an opportunity to find inspiration from the parable of the Good Samaritan which is at the centre of this encyclical. Participating in Share Lent is a way of doing our part so, as the Holy Father hopes, that “every person lives with dignity and has sufficient opportunities for his or her integral development.” Please give generously: drop your donation in to your parish collection, or give online on Development and Peace’s website at https://www.devp.org/ or call 1-888-234-8533 to donate. Every gift makes a big difference in the world. Thank you for sharing love today.

World Day of the Sick – Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

Thu, 02/11/2021 - 00:00

* The World Day of The Sick will be celebrated on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, Feb. 11. Ultimately, Catholic health care ministry is an activity of the whole Church – responding to human suffering and caring for the well-being of the whole person.  Together, we build a faith community that is continuing the healing ministry of Jesus. Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of the Sick this year focuses on the scriptural theme: “You have but one teacher and you are all brothers” (Mt 23:8)  The World Day of the Sick “is an opportunity to devote special attention to the sick and to those who provide them with assistance and care both in healthcare institutions and within families and communities,” says Pope Francis in his 2021 message reflecting on how a trust-based relationship must guide the care of the sick. “We think in particular of those who have suffered, and continue to suffer, the effects of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. To all, and especially to the poor and the marginalized, I express my spiritual closeness and assure them of the Church’s loving concern.”

Find the Holy Father’s message for the World Day of the Sick at: http://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/messages/sick/documents/papa-francesco_20201220_giornata-malato.html

Prayer for caregivers:

Loving Father and giver of all life,

You are our support and You are always with us.

During these long and trying times of pandemic and fear,  gift caregivers with perseverance and a vision of hope.

Hear our prayers for all support workers who are on duty every day, caring for those who are suffering, those who are weak and in need of perpetual help.

Bless the lives that have entered into the suffering of another; bless the arms that have embraced the sick with compassion; bless the hands that have comforted the dying and held the dead; and bless the caregivers to whom we commend all of the sick, the suffering and the aged.

Give strength and courage to our caregivers to be instruments of Your everlasting love. for all those who are in need of Your protection.

We ask this in the name of Christ the Healer, Your Son and our Lord, who lives with You and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.

Almighty God, giver of all that is good,

For life in the womb, coming from your creative power,

For the life of children, making us glad with their. freshness and promise,

For the life of young people, hoping for a better world,

For the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value,

For the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom.

Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “yes” to Your gift.

Help us to realize the sacredness of human life

and to respect and cherish it from conception to its natural end.

And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
