Father Dermot states that the system of Direct Provision, in Ireland, is shameful. Thankfully there has been a commitment given to correct this situation by 2023. Everyone we come across is our neighbour, including all persons that have come to the country we call our own.
May we hear the words of Jesus Christ anew, today “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets also.”
