SMA Justice Briefing following World Day of Peace 2019

This year’s World Day of Peace Message from Pope Francis reminds us that peace is central to the Mission of Christ’s disciples – bring peace to every family, community and to our ”common home”.

Dear Friends,

New Year Greetings from Dromantine. We hope that you had a peaceful Christmas filled with joy and hope at the birth of the Holy Infant.

Attached is the latest Briefing for World Day of Peace. This briefing has been produced by the SMA Justice Officer Gerry Forde who is based in Cork, and on whose behalf it is being circulated.

Gerry writes “This year’s World Day of Peace Message from Pope Francis reminds us that peace is central to the Mission of Christ’s disciples – bring peace to every family, community and to our ”common home”: the world in which God has placed us. This year’s message has a particular focus on the role of politics and participation in politics. It emphasises that politics should be at the service of human rights and peace. “

Thank you for all you do in the service of the SMA to help the light of God’s love for each person and living creature burn more brightly in our world.

May 2019 bring you, your families and loved ones every blessing and peace.

Best wishes

Dympna
