FOR A SYNODAL CHURCH: COMMUNION, PARTICIPATION, MISSION. 

All the baptised in the Diocese of Meath are invited to participate in the synodal process during Lent 2022.  Opportunities to engage in the process locally will be announced in February.

Enlightened by the Word of God and united in prayer, we will be able to discern the processes to seek God’s will and pursue the pathways to which God calls us – towards deeper communion, fuller participation, and greater openness to fulfilling our mission in the world. (Vademecum 1.2)

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

(Luke 4:21-30)

The people of Nazareth could not accept that this boy had something to teach them.  Fixed ideas about people can at times block us from hearing what is being said.  What a difference when we drop our prejudices!  Perhaps you have experienced hearing an important truth when you focused on what was being said, rather than on the person saying it?

The anger of the people arose when Jesus confronted them with God’s inclusive ways.  For them, God was ‘their God’ and God’s blessings were for them.  Jesus reminded them that this is not God’s way.  When have you been challenged to think in new ways and not to be excluding some people from your thoughts or concerns?  Was there good news for you in the challenge?
