Thought for the day: As disciples, we all need a kind of personal “rule of life”, and we are supported by the community of faith and its practices. But the externals of religions, the very supports we need, risk becoming merely cultural, an empty shell, if our heart is not in it. All three readings this Sunday underline the point: Pure, unspoilt religion is this: coming to the help of orphans and widows when they need it. Prayer: Heavenly Father, you know the human heart, that most devious thing of all (Sir 42:18; Jer 17:9). Help us to know ourselves. Help us to grow in integrity, rooted in purity of heart. Help to serve our neighbour in need with undivided hearts that we may come before you in heartfelt praise and thanksgiving. Amen

Pope Francis has urged people to get vaccinated against Covid-19, insisting that doing so is “an act of love”. In a public service announcement on Wednesday, the Pontiff stressed that the vaccines are safe and effective, and suggested that an individual would be doing his fellow man a service by accepting the jabs. “Being vaccinated with vaccines authorise by the competent authorities is an act of love,” he said in a video message. “And contributing to ensure the majority of people are vaccinated is an act of love. Vaccination is a simple but profound way of promoting the common good and caring for each other, especially the most vulnerable,” he added.
