The Rich Man and Lazarus is a powerful story reminding us that we are called to live our faith in our daily lives.  This can be done in our generosity towards the poor and in working towards justice in our world.  We do this in a variety of ways. We can see the goodness around us in those who are living examples of the Christian message. We are now called to listen urgently to the cry of the earth and to reflect on the injustices caused by the climate crisis. Millions of people are suffering worldwide through drought, sea-level rise and a breakdown of the earth’s ecological systems.
