Lenten Reflection - Ash Wednesday February 18th, 2015

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time to remember that God made us part of this great universe, interconnected on an elemental level. The Elements found in stardust are found in the planets and in us humans (93% of the mass of our body is stardust. Source:www.physicscentral.com) this interconnectedness highlights our responsibility to each other and our planet.

DEVELOPMENT and PEACE... SOWING seeds of solidarity

Development and Peace has been working to transform lives in the Global South since 1967. On Ash Wednesday, D&P will launch its annual Share Lent campaign with the theme "So much love... to give." To participate in this campaign offers us all an opportunity to stand in solidarity with the world's poorest people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. The generosity of Canadian Catholics "... allows us all to become not patrons of the poor, but their partners in search for human dignity. In this way we can truly become, as Pope Francis calls us to be, a church that is both poor and for the poor." Learn more at www.devp.org/en. Click on share lent. Please pray for a successful campaign.
