Archbishop Welby and Cardinal Nichols launch 'Listen to God: Hear the Poor'
This is the text which introduces both Archbishops speaking on video inviting Christians to spend a week praying for the poor and those who respond to human need:
Archbishop Justin Welby and Cardinal Vincent Nichols are encouraging people to join in a week of prayer for the church's work serving those in need, which they have called Listen To God: Hear the Poor.
During the week, which will run from Passion Sunday (6 April) to Palm Sunday (13 April), they will visit Anglican and Roman Catholic projects together.
Meanwhile the Archbishops are asking people to tweet what the church near them is doing, so this work can be held in prayer, using the hashtag #ListenToGod
Archbishop Justin will be retweeting a selection of the tweets each day from his personal Twitter account.
All next week daily prayer resources will be published on the websites of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Catholic Church in England and Wales, along with daily video reflections from members of both churches – including Archbishop Justin and Cardinal Nichols.- See more at:
