The Lord comes to judge the earth.

justice begins on our knees.
Action on behalf of justice … fully appears to us
as a constitutive dimension
of the preaching of the gospel.
World Synod of Bishops 1971

is something which concerns the Church deeply.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees,
It is no use walking anywhere to preach
unless our walking is our preaching.
St Francis of Assisi
O, woe is me,
To have seen what I have seen.
William Shakespeare, Hamlet
Teach, don’t preach!
