Praying with Social Justice

“Jesus tells us what the ‘protocol’ is, on which we will be judged. It is the one we read in chapter 25 of Matthew’s Gospel...Caring for our neighbor; for those who are poor, who suffer in body and in soul, for those who are in need. This is the touchstone.”

- Pope Francis

Many of us have heard of the social teachings of the church.  Being created in the image and likeness of God serves as a fundamental principle for a number of other themes contained in this social teaching.  Solidarity, care for creation, and a preferential option for the poor are among these principles. 

However, have you ever prayed with a consciousness of these principles?  Have you ever connected with the Holy and with other human beings in this way? 

This evening will help you to reflect on scripture, church teaching, and your own personal experience as we truly pray the social teachings of the Christian church.
