Monsignor’s Message – Opening Our Hearts To Charity

Posted on Sep 28, 2017 in Monsignor's Message, Msgr. Kieran Harrington

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

These last few weeks we have witnessed the awesome power of nature. Hurricanes and earthquakes have wreaked havoc. Some perished and many have lost their most valuable possessions. Out of the chaos of this ontic evil, the Heavenly Father pours out his grace upon us in the kindness and in some cases heroism of ordinary human beings. As Christians, we believe we are bound to our brothers and sisters in distress. Our starting point is prayer. As we contemplate the need of those faced with devastation, our hearts open in charity to those who have lost so much. It is easy for life to go on after the images fade from our television screens, but the suffering continues. We pray that we may never forsake any opportunity to express our compassion for our brothers and sisters in need.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
