In the Archdiocese of Southwark
A warm welcome to you all,
“On this mountain, for all peoples,
Yahweh Sabaoth is preparing
A banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines,
Of succulent food, of well-strained wines.
On this mountain, he has destroyed
The veil which used to veil all peoples
The pall enveloping all nations;
He has destroyed death forever.
Lord Yahweh has wiped away the tears from every cheek;
He has taken his people’s shame everywhere on earth
This is God’s dream for all humanity !!!! God is envisioning a world where all people from every nation, culture and tradition could be able to come together and celebrate life in its fullness. God is dreaming of a world without racial, social, cultural, age or sexual discrimination. God is yearning for a world without boundaries, a community which is inclusive, safe and hospitable towards everyone. A community in which one can celebrate and ritualise life in all its intense experiences and emotions. A community where one can call home!!! A community where God dwells within!!!
We, at St Benet’s, acknowledge that we are still pilgrims on a journey and yet hope that we will make a difference and help to make God’s dream a reality in our world today!!!
Hopefully, in going through our website, you will be imbued by the Spirit of God’s dream as well.
