Love to all!!
This is the weekend we celebrate with the Body of Christ what is more commonly called Pro-Life weekend. As we challenge Abortion on demand, let us realize that the church calls us to a fuller "consistent life ethic". Roman Catholic Cardinal Joseph Bernardin referred to this as Christ's seamless garment. We choose life and the enhancement of life from conception to natural death. It has implications for how we treat immigrants, how we treat the incarcerated, how we seek peace with justice for the persecuted in the middle east, etc. It also has implications in how we act toward those we disagree with religiously or politically. Pro-Life is who we are and how we live.
Readings for the feast are Genesis 1: 26-28a or Jeremiah 31: 10-17, psalm 2 or 10, Romans 8: 35-39 or 1 Corinthians 15: 19-26 and Matthew 18: 1-5 or John 14: 1-6.
All the events of the week will be taking place at usual times. noon Eucharist on Tuesday and Thursday, Wednesday evening prayer at 5 pm and the study after Thursday liturgy.
Fraternity business meeting after the 5 pm Saturday liturgy. Plenty to discuss.
More later. Work for racial justice as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King.
