Sundays in Ordinary Time (C)
CAFD Harvest Family Fast Day
On Harvest Family Fast Day (4th October) we were asked to have a simple meal and give what we saved to CAFD’s water appeal which is for the retiring collection today
Last week’s Gospel reminded us of the story of the rich man and Lazarus; we know so many people are still hungry and thirsty, as Lazarus was.
In today’s Gospel we are invited to take the opportunity to help to end the injustice of extreme poverty, hunger and thirst. Our retiring collection can help to ensure that everyone has access to clean water, nourishing food, education and safety.
St Francis of Assisi, your whole life sang in harmony
with God, nature and others.
With you, we praise God for Brother Sun, full of beauty and splendour,
warming the earth, summoning shoots from darkness into daylight.
We praise God for Sister Water, so useful and humble, precious and pure,
greening arid ground, growing life in desert places.
Pray for us, Francis, that, like you, we may care for all that exists,
until Brother Sun and Sister Water produce a harvest shared by all
in love and solidarity, justice and peace. Amen.
