Westminster Justice and Peace on Radio Maria Tuesdays at 11.15am, starting 7th March

‘Enlarge the space of your tent, spread out your tent cloths unsparingly, lengthen your ropes and make firm your pegs.’

Isaiah 54, 2

Word of Life: Enlarging the Space of Our Tent

Radio Maria are running a five-week series beginning on 7th March and continuing through Lent every Tuesday at 11.15am with guests Fr Dominic Robinson SJ and Colette Joyce from the Diocese of Westminster, sharing reflections from their Lent Faith Sharing resource ‘Enlarging the Space of Our Tent’.

In these programmes, Fr Dominic Robinson SJ and Colette Joyce reflect on issues which are at the heart of the Kingdom in 2023: poverty, the impact of the cost of living, homelessness, racial justice, the care of creation, the welcome we extend to migrants and refuges, and peace-making. As we journey through Lent we are called to make more space in our hearts and minds as a community of missionary disciples. In reflecting on these challenges we keep our eyes on Jesus, travelling with him towards the cross and the eventual joy of the resurrection.

‘Justice and Peace are at the heart of the Kingdom preached by Jesus. The Church prays that Jesus might accomplish in us: A Kingdom of Truth and Life, A Kingdom of Holiness and Grace, A Kingdom of Justice, Love and Peace. This is an echo of the Beatitudes that Jesus taught. What is difficult is to know how to achieve this…’

Bishop Nicholas Hudson, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster
