Pope Francis continued his catechesis on Christian hope today at his weekly General Audience. He told pilgrims that God’s hope calls us to be "channels of humility and simplicity for all.""The hope that we have been given,” the Pope said, “does not separate us from others, nor does it lead us to discredit or marginalize them.”You can watch the Pope’s entire address tomorrow tonight at 7:05pm EST right after Perspectives Daily, here on Salt + Light.With the support of Canadians from coast to coast, Development and Peace has invested more than $600 million in over 100 countries since its inception in 1967.This year, D&P is celebrating its 50 year anniversary with the Pilgrimage of the Solidarity Quilt.For the 2017 Lenten campaign, D&P launched a collaborative quilt project where each diocese in Canada has been asked to create a patch in honour of Development and Peace’s 50th anniversary. The patches will form a quilt that will be completed in autumn 2017, when the organization will mark 50 years of solidarity work with the global south. The first quilt patches are being prepared in British Columbia and Newfoundland, and celebrations will be held before the patches travel to other dioceses where they will be added to form the quilt.Today at S+L, we had the privilege of seeing the quilt first-hand as Luke Stocking, the Animator for Central Ontario Region, brought it to our studios for a private look.
That is it for Perspectives Daily today. We’ll see you tomorrow.
