We continue our reflections on the vocation of all Christians to be missionary disciples and close to the poor, like the soon to be beatified Pauline Jaricot. To find out more about Pauline Jaricot, visit: missio.org.uk/Pauline
As missionary disciples we are to follow Jesus and his example of closeness to the
poor. Pauline wrote:
'Following our Lord Jesus Christ, the poor are God's true courtiers, his favourites'.
Pauline's closeness to the poor led her to develop a keen awareness of social injustices, and to fight the roots of these evils.
Let us pray to grow in our closeness to those who are poor, and in our commitment to God’s Kingdom of justice, mercy, and peace.
