Today’s Reflection: O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home;
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer,
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency;
Bestir my compassion, and help me be concerned enough to help,
By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen. — Rev. Samuel F. Pugh.

Today’s Reflection: Heavenly Father,
Your will for your people is peace, not war.
Pour out on our world, especially in Eastern Europe, your Spirit of compassion and solidarity.
Grant all those who believe in you the strength to be close to those who suffer and the courage to resolve their differences and conflicts in truth and without resort to arms.
Be with the widow, the orphan, the refugee and the peacemaker.
Bind us all into the peace of your Kingdom.
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen. — Father Damian Howard SJ,
Provincial for the Jesuits in Britain.

Today’s Reflection: Dear God, our world is hurting and broken. We pray for those who have lost loved ones, those who have lost homes, for those whose world has been shaken.

Amen. — Kristine Mackey.
