Advent Day 16
Having had a glimpse recently of just how our Catholic Diocese of Southwark operates behind closed doors, thanks to the Data Protection Act, these words from the Advent Carol O Come, O Come Emmanuel seemed appropriate! Of course, also on a local, national and international level. This image, for me, best summed up how destructive humans can be, and how we long to escape from whatever 'sad division' is affecting us.
For some, if we close our eyes and pretend it doesn't exist that's enough. For others, covering our eyes temporarily, to gather strength, but then pressing forward to make happen the change we want to see is the way to go! If we only supported each other, communicated more, whatever our outlook and way of working, along our path through this life, that would be a good start, it seems to me, to building that peace we all wish for.
