January 5. The Sodality always held their annual conference at this time of the year. They gathered from around the country to debate and discuss the serious issues that affected all aspects of their lives. In addition to Covid-19 Climate change and gender-based violence were on the agenda at their virtual meeting of 2021, the same issues that were raised by many other interest groups, political, social, men’s and women’s groups. Mrs Seutloadi, the president, introduced the scripture passage to start the meeting and stressed how important action should be, and not just talk.
“Little children , let us not love in word or speech, but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:11-21.
Pope Francis: Approaching, speaking, listening, looking at, coming to know and understand one another and to find common ground, all these things are summed up in the one word, “dialogue.” Lack of dialogue means that in individual sectors people are concerned not for the common good, but for the benefits of power or, at best, for ways to impose their own ideas. The heroes of the future will be those who can break with this unhealthy mindset and determine respectfully to promote truthfulness. FT 198-202. Reflect and share.
