Journée nationale de prière en solidarité avec les peuples autochtones 2019

Le 12 décembre, fête de Notre-Dame de Guadalupe, l’Église au Canada célèbre la Journée nationale de prière en solidarité avec les peuples autochtones. Approuvé par les évêques du Canada, ce projet est coordonné par le Conseil autochtone catholique du Canada depuis 2002. Cette année, la réflexion du Conseil s’appuie sur le thème de l’année des langues autochtones proclamée par les Nations Unies en 2019. « Nous aimons tous être adressés dans notre langue maternelle. Et sur le plan de la foi aussi, nous aimons que les autres s’adressent à nous dans notre langue et selon la « culture de nos mères » (cf. 2 Maccabées 7, 21.27), car ainsi nos coeurs sont mieux disposés à entendre la Parole de Dieu. »

2019 National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples

On 12 December, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Church in Canada celebrates the National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples. This project, with the approval of the Bishops of Canada, has been coordinated since 2002 by the Canadian Catholic Indigenous Council (formerly the Canadian Catholic Aboriginal Council). This year, the reflection by the Council draws on theme of the United Nations 2019 year of Indigenous Languages. “We all like to be spoken to in our mother tongue. So too in the faith, we like to be spoken to in our “mother culture”, our native language (cf. 2 Maccabees 7:21,27), and as a result our hearts become better disposed to hear the Word of God.”
