Scripture Of The Week

(Fourteenth Ordinary, Sunday 7 July 2019)

Jesus said to his disciples, “Whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into the streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near’”. (Luke 10:10-11)

 

Reflection (from the weekly prayer project)

 

 

Christianity Requires Work

Today’s scripture readings challenge any easy assumption on the part of followers of Jesus that they can be casual about living by the values prevailing in the world around them. If we simply drift in the strong current of those values and the forces behind them, we shall surely drift away from the Gospel and the hope it holds out; we shall not be part of the radical new creation that God is calling into being through the cross of Jesus. As the old slogan goes, Christianity is comforting but not comfortable.

Mazenod College KeepCups

 

The College is proud to launch their very own KeepCups for you to purchase. This initiative was developed by the Sustainability and Environment portfolio of the College and Campus ministry.

As part of promoting KeepCups to the College, the Young Vinnies will give 30% off the price of hot chocolates when a student purchases a hot chocolate with their KeepCup.

($1 instead of the usual $1.50).

Part of the proceeds of the sale will also go to Oblate missionary work in India, Sri Lanka and China.

KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable cup. Purchasing a KeepCup for students is a practical and easy way to reduce waste and carbon emissions.

 

Takeaway coffee cups are lined on the inside with a plastic film, making them notoriously difficult to recycle. And most never even make it there no matter what bin you put them in because recycling streams are usually contaminated by supposedly ‘compostable’ or ‘biodegradable’ cups and lids that never actually compost or biodegrade because most places don’t have the infrastructure to do it.

 

Pope Francis, inspires and challenges us: “Each of us also has a responsibility for others and for the future of our planet”.
