DEVELOPMENT and PEACE... SOWING seeds of solidarity

Development and Peace has been working to transform lives in the Global South since 1967. On Ash Wednesday, D&P will launch its annual Share Lent campaign with the theme "So much love... to give." To participate in this campaign offers us all an opportunity to stand in solidarity with the world's poorest people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. The generosity of Canadian Catholics "... allows us all to become not patrons of the poor, but their partners in search for human dignity. In this way we can truly become, as Pope Francis calls us to be, a church that is both poor and for the poor." Learn more at www.devp.org/en. Click on share lent. Please pray for a successful campaign.

Movie: The Theory of Everything

This movie is advertised as the story of Stephen Hawking; could be subtitled the story of Jane, his loving wife. Powerful acting and amazing story. Stephen is now over 70 – he has lived with ALS since his diagnosis at age 21. He has 4 grandchildren and he is still teaching. (P.S. You don’t have to know physics to appreciate this film.)
