Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brothers and sisters,
you did it to me.
Matthew 25:40

Archdiocese of Glasgow (medium)The foundation of the Church’s social teaching is the Gospel and the teaching of Jesus Christ about the dignity of the human person. Everyone is made in the image and likeness of God and has a dignity that does not depend on age, race, gender, wealth or any other attribute.

Justice and Peace is the channel established by the church to make its social teaching known to all its members and to encourage action for the common good.

To work for justice and to pray for peace … these are not optional extras for a Catholic. They are essential threads in the very weave of Catholic living. Justice and Peace..should offer focus, guidance and practical opportunities for concerned persons to engage with society in a way which brings the values of the Gospel to the issues of the dayArchbishop Mario Conti, 2009.

Not quite Justice or Peace! But these unsung heroines definitely working for the common good.

A bit of #Archivescience for you all today! The Scottish Women’s Hospitals sent fourteen units (largely staffed by women) out to various locations throughout Europe and Russia during WWI. Our SWH collection contains a huge number of photographs including this one of the 1st French Unit’s mobile X-ray car. It included a dark room with independent water and electricity supplies which meant it could be used at other locations and hospitals.

Find out more about the SWH in our forthcoming free display, “The Unsung Heroines of WWI”. This will be held on Level 5 of The Mitchell Library outside the archives searchroom and will run Thursday 23 November 2017 until Wednesday 10 January 2018.

Powerful words on a desperate situation.
