Trocaire – Lent

Traditionally at Lent, we are mindful of Trocaire’s works for those less fortunate than ourselves.  This year Trocaire’s Lenten Campaign will focus on exploring the Impact of Conflict on Families in South Sudan. This Lent, we learn more about the suffering of people who have lost their homes and loved ones to war, and how they are rebuilding their lives through love, friendship and solidarity.

Trocaire are impacted like everyone else as a direct result of the Coronavirus.

Our reading at Mass on the 5th of February last was as follows:-

Lectionary: 327

Let brotherly love continue.
Do not neglect hospitality,
for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.
Be mindful of prisoners as if sharing their imprisonment,
and of the ill-treated as of yourselves,
for you also are in the body.
Let marriage be honoured among all
and the marriage bed be kept undefiled,
for God will judge the immoral and adulterers.
Let your life be free from love of money
but be content with what you have,
for he has said, I will never forsake you or abandon you.
Thus we may say with confidence:

The Lord is my helper,
and I will not be afraid.
What can anyone do to me?

Remember your leaders who spoke the word of God to you.
Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

In giving to Trocaire (or indeed any other worthy charity), through prayer and/or financial support, we potentially unknowingly entertain angels. We cannot by ourselves change the world but in small acts of charity, we can make a difference.

Please visit www.trocaire.org to make a financial contribution. No matter how big or small, it will make a difference.
