Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time—12 August 2018
Around the world there are women’s shelters run by the St Vincent de Paul Society called ‘Manna House’. It’s an inspired name for such an important work. Women and their children, in the midst of fear, and having suffered terrible abuse, are welcomed into a safehaven where they can be loved and looked after. It’s a temporary respite where broken families can piece their lives back together and be revived for the journey ahead.
