15 May, International Day of Families
Saturday is International Day of Families. Let us remember and give thanks for each of the members of our own families and all who are ‘like family’ to us. May our relationships be strengthened. May any conflicts be resolved. May love bind us together.
Let us be particularly mindful of all those mourning the absence of family members dear to them and whose family relationships are being tested, including: the recently deceased, victims of COVID in quarantine and in hospital, separated parents, refugees, prisoners, the homeless, runaways and trafficked persons.
