MatthewThe Gospel of Matthew       Bishop David Walker

Matthew’s gospel is thought to have been written between 80 – 90 AD in Antioch in Syria where the disciples of Jesus were first referred to as Christians (Acts 11:26).

Written at a time of great change that demanded a new way of understanding what it means to be a disciple of Jesus as the fulfilment of the promised and hoped for messiah.

Laudato“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us?” *

 Fr Jim McKeon and Gail Gill

 

Papal social encyclicals are written in times of social crisis or at great turning points in history. In Laudato Si on care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis sees climate change and unresolved issues of global hunger and poverty as resulting in increasing conflict, violence and displacement of peoples. Written for the global community five years ago, its contents are increasingly relevant.

Come and be part of a shared reading group to explore Laudato Si and how we might put it into action. * Pope Francis Laudato Si n 160
