The theme for today, Racial Justice Sunday, builds on that of the previous year’s Racial Justice Sunday ‘A Time to Act’, which reflected on the importance of everyone recognising themselves, their race, their culture and their history in the life of the Church.
In 2022 we are being invited to reflect on how we see others in the “Image and Likeness of God”. A series of A4 posters featuring Our Lady and the Child Jesus from a diverse cross-section of countries and cultures carrying a prayer taken from Pope Francis’ document Fratelli Tutti have been prepared and can be seen on cbcew.org.uk.
Come, Holy Spirit, show us your beauty, reflected in all the peoples of the earth, so that we may discover anew that all are important, and all are necessary, different faces of the one humanity that God so loves. Amen.
