Bishop Nicholas Hudson on welcoming the poor into your life

15/12/2015 10:19 am

Bishop Nicholas Hudson, an auxiliary Bishop in the Diocese of Westminster, gives us an Advent reflection in which he focuses on people with learning disabilities and, in particular, the work of the L'Arche communities - places where people can discover who they are not just what they can do.

Bishop Hudson talks about mercy as something that can be given and received - something that will change you for the better:

"People I know who have lived with L'Arche for many years tell me that when you welcome the poor into your life, you find them to be a real blessing to you, and more than that, they change you - mercy will change you."

Podcast Series

The Year of Mercy, given to us by Pope Francis, presents the ideal opportunity to focus on God's mercy and forgiveness.

To mark this, many of the Bishops of England and Wales have recorded special reflections for Advent. One podcast reflection will be uploaded every day throughout the season.
