The Mission of the Common Good. Family Missionary Thought 31 October

 Margaret shared,  “ The liturgical year is a kind of spiritual journey that can be brought to life in our own daily lives as well as the parish.  I’ve always liked Halloween, not the witches and broomsticks and cats bit, but the fun and games and the fellowship. For our family it always led up to All Saints Day when we had more fun and games thinking of our favourite saints before moving on to November’s focus on remembering the faithful departed. Then we could sing, ‘And when the saints come marching in, I want to be in that number………’  Has this Extraordinary Mission month been a positive step on this journey for all of you?”  “It brought me to a greater understanding of what is meant by the common good. Has it made us understand that we are all ultimately called to be saints? That is what acting for the common good is?”

Pharisees warned Jesus but he said, “I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow and on the third day I finish my course.   It cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.” Luke 13:31-35

Pope Francis:   It is the responsibility of the State to safeguard and promote the common good of society.  Based on the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity and fully committed to political dialogue and consensus building it plays a fundamental role, in working for the integral development of all. EG 240
