Five Ways – Nov 23

November 20, 2023

Many thanks to all who commented on the Oct. 18 Five Ways e-letter. Below is an item on the Dorothy Day of France, Madeleine Delbrel, a member of the Oblate of Mary Immaculate Family, praised recently by Pope Francis.

As part of our efforts to evangelize, Pope Francis is urging Catholics to dialogue with members of other religions. At the same time, Dialogue respects the integrity of these religions. An Oblate, Father Jack Lau, has been very involved with this. You may pull up the Mission-Unity-Dialogue website ( and scroll down to his article “Interfaith Journey: Reflection into the Path of Wonder.” Many thanks to Jack for this article, with its beautiful photos.

Pope Francis will take part in COP28, the Global Faith Leaders Summit being held in the United Arab Emirates, Dec. 1-3. This summit will address the escalating climate change. Let us keep him and all the participants in prayer.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving Day on Nov. 23, may we each deepen our attitude of gratitude.

In Christ’s love,

Fr. Harry Winter, O.M.I.
