Together We Pray – #BlackLivesMatter

WePrayTogether

A video prayer from Salt and Light Media:

“Together we pray for our brothers and sisters who are affected by racial discrimination and injustice especially members of the Black community. May we unite in prayer, fasting and almsgiving so that the Spirit of the Lord can help us find true healing and renewal.” #BlackLivesMatter

“The denigration of humankind, the denial of God-given rights and of human responsibilities that flow from them, lack of love for one’s neighbour, and the failure to show respect toward others are wholly intolerable; these must always be condemned in the strongest of terms. Racism and discrimination remain an appalling reality for a civilized society. The Bishops and Catholic faithful of Canada join with Pope Francis in lamenting all who have lost their lives and suffered because of exclusion, racism and violence which are antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As the Holy Father himself stated at the occasion of this tragedy: “We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.”
