Welcome! We invite you to make a 'Sacred Space' in your day, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
Something to think and pray about this week
God’s world is a world in which everyone feels responsible for the other, for the good of the other....[I]n reflection, fasting, and prayer, each of us deep down should ask ourselves, Is this really the world I desire? Is this really the world we all carry in our hearts? Is the world that we want really a world of harmony and peace, in ourselves, in our relations with others, in families, in cities, in and between nations? And does not true freedom mean choosing ways in this world that lead to the good of all and are guided by love?
But then we wonder, Is this the world in which we are living? Creation retains its beauty, which fills us with awe, and it remains a good work. But there are also “violence, division, disagreement, war.” These occur when man, the summit of creation, stops contemplating beauty and goodness, and withdraws into his own selfishness.
