Social Justice at Bede Polding

 

The community of Bede Polding College has a rich tradition of care. Numerous activities take place each year which demonstrate a willingness to serve, give and to pay forward deeds which do not seek recognition or receive reward. 

As Catholics we demonstrate a commitment to social justice. Reflection, prayer and action around Social Justice Issues are the essential characteristics of a life lived according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The work for justice is an essential and urgent task for Catholics, both locally and globally since too many people are suffering or are in need.


Reflection

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:26-27  The fact that human beings are created in the image of God and have been redeemed by Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection means that they have a fundamental dignity. It is this dignity that must be upheld by our collective efforts. Throughout 2011, many initiatives will occur that will seek to steer the efforts of Bede Polding College towards recognising and supporting the needs of others. Relevant Social Justice Issues will be highlighted through curriculum initiatives which will seek to embed such issues into the teaching and learning programs.

Micah, a prophet of the Old Testament, names the three essential elements of the Christian mission.

This is what Yahwek asks of you -

To Act Justly
To Love Tenderly
and to Walk Humbly with your God.


Prayer

At Bede Polding College, we see Social Justice as the underlying principle for a peaceful, harmonious working community. As members of the larger society, we are currently engaged in discussions regarding the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. I invite you and your families to share the following prayer.

Almighty and merciful God,
whose Son became a refugee
and had no place to call his own;
look with mercy on those who today
are fleeing from danger,
homeless and hungry.
Bless those who work to bring them relief;
inspire generosity and compassion in all our hearts;
and guide the nations of the world towards that day
when all will rejoice in your Commonwealth of justice and of peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
