In God's Hand

In Gods Handformer EU prov leadersBeside the candles - a symbol of growing unity - we have this carving called In God’s Hand - a symbol of Hope and Trust for our EU Province.

God’s hand supports three people - holding the new EU Province established from 2 provinces/ 1 region, comprising 5 countries – all represented here today.

paschal candleWe find even our EU Province on the Easter Candle displayed in the three drops of blood – life giving in the Risen Lord.
How much life and hope holds the future if we open our hearts and reach out to the Other!
How powerful can this message of Hope and Trust and Life be by simply being present to one another with compassion and care knowing that it is God who carries and accompanies us into the future.

PEACE is the true news!

Lord, make us instruments of your peace.

Help us to recognize the evil latent in a communication that does not build communion.
Help us to remove the venom from our judgements.
Help us to speak about others as our brothers and sisters.
