Brigidines acknowledge and give thanks for the Gifts of 2022. May our hearts remain open to recognise and embrace graced moments during 2023.
We reflect also on the challenges and the interconnected world crises of the past year. We are called to respond to opportunities and fresh possibilities in action for justice and peace during the year ahead. For World Day of Peace, 1st January, Pope Francis reminds us:
“….we cannot ignore one fundamental fact, namely that the many moral, social, political and economic crises we are experiencing are all interconnected, and what we see as isolated problems are actually causes and effects of one another. Consequently, we are called to confront the challenges of our world in a spirit of responsibility and compassion.”
