Prayer of September 2019
Baptized and sent: instruments of God for liberation

From Evangelii Gaudium n°195
«When St Paul went to the Apostles in Jerusalem, to discern whether he was going too fast or had run in vain (cf.Gal.2,2), the key-criteria of the authenticity that had been indicated to him was not to forget the poor. (cf.Gal. 2,10). This great criteria, for the Pauline communities not to let themselves be dragged with the individualistic lifestyle of the pagans, is a great actuality in the present context, which tends to develop itself into a new individualistic paganism We cannot always adequately manifest the beauty of the Gospel but we must always show this sign :
the option for the least or those whom the society rejects and puts aside.»
