THE JOURNEY CATHOLIC RADIO PROGRAM | AIRS 14th OCTOBER

This week on The Journey, we reflect on the Gospel of St Mark, Sr Hilda shares her Wisdom from the Abbey with “the unexpected gift”. The Peaceful Parent, Marilyn Rodrigues, reminds us to have “realistic expectations of ourselves”, and we are encouraged by Bruce Downes, The Catholic Guy, of the importance of “deeper prayer”. Our music this week is a great reminder of the amazing Christian music artists we are lucky to have on our program. Go to jcr.org.au or itunes.jcr.org.au where you can listen anytime and subscribe to weekly shows by email.

SOCIAL JUSTICE STATEMENT: “A PLACE TO CALL HOME: MAKING A HOME FOR EVERYONE IN OUR LAND”

Every day in our streets, we, like the Samaritan, see wounded people desperately in need of help. They are the homeless and the lost, injured by misfortune, by violence and by poverty. How have so many people come to be on the streets of such a rich nation?” (SJS, Reflection on the parable of the Good Samaritan, 3)

The Bishops’ Statement begins with Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan. Consider this parable in the light of Australia’s homelessness crisis. There are various ways we can be Good Samaritans—some people help with emergency relief or a bed for the night, while others use their community connections to provide support and create more housing. All kinds of responses are needed.
