|| JUBILEE PLEDGE FOR CHARITY, JUSTICE AND
This Jubilee Pledge for Charity, Justice and Peace is being offered to individuals, families and parishes as a sign of commitment in preparation for the millennium:
The jubilee of our Lords birth calls us to bring glad tidings to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free (Luke 4:18).
As disciples of Jesus in the new millennium, I/we pledge to:
Love for others, and in the first place love for the poor, in whom the church sees Christ himself, is made concrete in the promotion of justice.
Pope John Paul II, Centesimus Annus
