The Caribbean will likely face the earliest and greatest impact if there’s no global action on climate change. That’s according to Heather A E Pinnock, chair of the Social Justice Commission in Kingston, Jamaica, who addressed Caribbean bishops at their 59th Annual Plenary Meeting in Montego Bay. She praised the bishops of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) for their 2005 pastoral letter Caring For The Earth – Our Responsibility: An Invitation To Reflection, but called on them to do more.

Seized by the drama of the LITURGY

Fr. Hugh Logan depicts a Roman Soldier during Passion Play
 
Whenever I see a play on a theatre stage or on a cinema/TV screen it does me good. It opens up my world; it enlightens and enriches my world!   Reading a certain type of novel has the same effect on me! It’s not that I’m escaping the ‘real world’ by entering the world of fiction. I find I’m being drawn into, even sharing in the world of other people – their joys, sorrows, successes and failures. I would even go so far as to say that these excursions throw light on my own self, my own world.

Christmas Message from His Lordship Bishop Vincent Darius OP

Print PDF

Two thousand years ago the angels sang this chorus, heralding the birth of the Prince of Peace, “Glory to God in the highest heavens and on earth, peace to men of good will.”

Peace is God’s good will to humanity; peace is God’s gift to us. Christ is God’s peace among us. He is the Prince of Peace. The message of peace was very frequent on his lips. “Go in peace your sins are forgiven.” “Blessed are the peacemakers.”  “When you enter a house say, “Peace be to this house.” “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you.” After his resurrection, his constant greeting was, “Peace be with you.”

Where is that peace? It is not to be found in the absence of violence, terrorism and wars. It is not found in religious persons, politicians or other persons. It is not even found in me.

The peace of Christ is not the result of human effort.  So many efforts have been made to end the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians and they have failed. The prospects for a lasting peace settlement seem to be very elusive. Think about the many areas in our world where time, money and energy are being utilized to obtain peace and to no avail.

The peace of Christ is a gift. It is a gift to us. But although peace is Christ’s gift, peace in the world becomes our responsibility. We are called to use the peace of Christ to create peace in a very broken and fragmented world. At our liturgical celebrations when we are invited to give the sign of peace, we should treat that moment as a solemn occasion. It is the moment when we should all say to ourselves, “Yes, Lord, I accept the challenge to be a peacemaker.”

Finally if we want peace in our word, we must work for justice. As long as our systems, institutions and policies are unjust, there would never be peace.

I pray that, during this Christmas season, we would leave the doors to our hearts wide open so that the Prince of Peace many enter and so transform our lives. 

Wishing all a Blessed Christmas and God’s richest blessings for the New Year.
