Reflection for the Week

Living in a world of wonder, exchanged for profit and greed, invites a sense anger. Woe to those who strip the earth of its glory, rob people of their dignity, and propagate darkness. If ever there was a time for re-making a world and a worldview in light of the Infinite, it is now. Proclaiming lament and hope are a beginning, but they have to translate into a polyphony of actions that will make a contribution to change for the sake of a just mercy. When we make a pledge to radically reject the forces of materialism, our commitment will no doubt transform us into exiles from that vast network of betrayal and oppression, as it attempts to parasitically reign over all that is.
