Earlier this year, Pope Francis launched his Share the Journey campaign. This is to show support for the millions forced to flee their homes be it through war, persecution, national disaster or poverty.

In support of the campaign, CAFOD is asking us all to help walk ‘around the world’, a total 24,901 miles! Every step we take counts!

We would like to wish everyone a peaceful and joyful Christmas and to thank you for all your support to help bring about a fairer and more just world.

Lord Jesus,

The angels who announced your birth
sang of  peace; and Mary your mother
treasured their words in her heart.

Today we strive to bring about a world
where all your children live free
from the threat of violence and war.

May we be lovers of peace,
givers and creators of hope.

We long for the time
when those who go hungry are filled with good things
and the lowly are raised high.

May we be inspired by your love,
to transform weapons of war into tools of peace.

Amen
