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.

It's hard to believe that the Glasgow Winter Night Shelter is more than half way through the 4 month project.
The staff and volunteers who have signed up have coped with many incidents, some good and some less desirable.
It's not an easy job and we salute your determination, bravery and willingness to do what's right, however difficult it is.
Well done.
