The Integrity of Justice

That those who administer justice may work with integrity, and that the injustice which prevails in the world may not have the last word. 

Pope Francis, July 2019

Read the reflection

Three Challenges for the Month

1: Think of, or chat with others about good practices in the administration of justice, pondering these as a way to underline the importance of doing justice with integrity and truth; look for opportunities to tell others about them.

2: Reflect, on your own or in your family, community or friendship circles, and do an examination of conscience on how we can easily tolerate injustice, in our interpersonal relations and our politics, particularly when minorities or those already marginalised might be injured.

3: Promote in your parish or community a time of reflection and prayer for those who administer justice and reflect on unjust situations, especially injustice seems to have the last word, and on ways to overcome them.

Prayer

Good Father, I know you're with me.

Here I am in this new day.

Put my heart once more next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,

that is given for me and that comes to me in the Eucharist.

May your Holy Spirit make me your friend and apostle, available to your mission.

I put in your hands my joys and hopes,

my works and sufferings, everything that I am and have,

in communion with my brothers and sisters of this worldwide prayer network.
Together we pray with the Holy Father and the whole people of God for this month’s intention.

Our Father … Hail, Mary … Glory be …
