AUGUST ISSUE
Spirit of Solidarity
Taking a closer and sensitive look at the challenging realities in
the world today, who
can afford to be indifferent - even more if we are a people of faith? Vivified
by the Spirit of God, in liturgy and in life, we receive, celebrate and live out the transformative power of God. Renewed by this gift of God in our lives,
we are impelled to be instruments of God`s action in the world today. The inspiring figures the readers will encounter
in this issue (Jessica Cox, Roy Moore, Fr. Bob MacCahil, Fr. Werenfried and Pope Francis) are but
a few of those people who, in various ways, have experienced God working in them and through them, doing beautiful things
in the world. This challenge - a faith lived in committed charity - is for all.
Our limitations (moral, psychological or even physical) can never be
an excuse in remaining unconcerned, nor can our shortcomings or even our failures justify our narcissism. Let the Spirit of True Solidarity conquer our hearts!
