Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations are free email reflections sent every day of the year. Each meditation features a reflection on a yearly theme, with each week building on previous topics—though you can join at any time! The theme this year is
A Time of Unveiling. Despite the uncertainty and disorder, our present moment is a great opportunity to awaken to deeper transformation, love, and hope. Sign-up here to receive the Meditations.

There is a weekly Saturday morning Zoom-based discussion group to explore the meditations.

CAFOD – Climate Change Petition:

This year, the UK will host the largest gathering of world leaders ever to take place on British soil: the ‘COP26’ climate talks in Glasgow in November. As Prime Minister, Boris Johnson must push world leaders to show the ambition we need to keep temperature rises below the disastrous 1.5-degree threshold. This means that all countries must play their part. With the eyes of the world on the UK, we must urge the Prime Minister to make sure communities hardest hit by the climate emergency are listened to at COP26.

Please sign our petition at //cafod.org.uk/reclaim
For those without internet access, petition cards can be ordered from the CAFOD Shop: 0300 011 5680. Thank you.

Homily
Sunday August 1st

St Paul urges us not to live aimless lives. He obviously means that life has a purpose and that there is a targeted kind of life. He is talking of course about being a follower of Jesus, about being a Christian.

Our lives certainly have the target of heaven. Our final end, our destiny is to see the Lord face to face in Heaven. So we certainly are not aimless in our
ultimate goal.

Before leaving this life to be with God in eternity it is however important that we do not waste our time on earth in aimlessness. After all we know that we are on the road to eternity. To be aimless would be to waste the purpose of life on the earth. This is the place where we know love
and serve God.

Our target is Sunday Mass, is Holy Communion, is daily prayer, is love of neighbour.
These in themselves if lived lovingly and with attention and devotion would ensure that we do not live aimlessly. Why not recommit ourselves to this faith-filled way of living so that aimlessness is not our experience but rather the fulfilling of our purpose here on the earth which is to enjoy the loving presence of God with us on each day
of our lives.
