CAFOD is raising much-needed
funds for Ukraine

They have joined an appeal launched by the UK Disasters Emergency Committee to help hundreds of thousands of people fleeing conflict
in the country.

Life for the people of Ukraine has changed completely with homes, schools, and hospitals destroyed.

Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe. The United Nations estimate that more than a million people have fled their homes so far - leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones. They desperately need shelter, food, and water. Donations to CAFOD will help local experts in Ukraine to provide: Food, water, healthcare, shelter and clothing You can donate to CAFOD's Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Click here.

DAILY READINGS

Click here for the Daily Readings in today's Mass.


Homily
August 19th

Jesus tells us in today’s gospel reading what we have heard so many times before -
that we have to

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
With all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and first commandment …
The second resembles it : you must love your
Neighbour as yourself. “

Let us reflect on these words today. Let us ponder them and read them over a few times and let us be aware how we are and are not loving in the way Jesus calls us to.

Then let us be clear that Love is who God is, Love is what the Church is, Love is what our mission is. This is wonderful, beautiful ad life affirming. The Lord who loves us invites us to love our neighbour, who is everyone.
