News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
During the coming month our Synod will take place, the first in the archdiocese since 1955. In this edition Father Philip Inch reminds us that ‘the most important task in the days that run up to the Synod is prayer’.
Our centre pages offer a week of prayer and reflection for the final days leading up to the Synod – from Sunday 13 June to the meeting itself on Saturday 19 June and the Mass in the Metropolitan Cathedral on Sunday 20 June. Archbishop Malcolm has asked that each day these prayers are used throughout the archdiocese, either at Mass or in private prayer. Let us pray that we may become ever more closely the Church that we are called to be.
The last month has sadly once again been one of violence in the Holy Land. Pope Francis has asked that every community pray to the Holy Spirit ‘that Israelis and Palestinians may find the path of dialogue and forgiveness, be patient builders of peace and justice, and be open, step by step, to a common hope, to coexistence among brothers and sisters.’ May we join in prayer for peace in the Holy Land.
