Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
From The Pastor
Dear Parishioners:
On this Respect Life Sunday, I would like to share
with you some excerpts from at talk Pope Francis
gave on June 5th about the Culture of Waste. He
ties it in to the responsibility we all have to use
wisely what we have and to be ever mindful of
the needs of those who are not in a position to
help themselves, the most vulnerable of society.
He has shown himself to be a champion of the
poor, and the simple lifestyle that he has adopted
symbolizes his deeply held belief that people
matter more than things.
To cultivate and care encompasses not only the
relationship between us and the environment, between
man and creation,but it also encompasses human
relationships. The Popes have spoken of human
ecology, closely linked to environmental ecology. We
are living in a time of crisis. We see this in the
environment, but above all we see this in humankind.
The human person is in danger: this is certain. The
human person is in danger today; here is the urgency
of human ecology! And it is a serious danger because
the problem is not superficial but profound. Man is not
in charge today. Money is in charge. Money rules.
God the Father did not give the task of caring for the
earth to money, but to us, to men and women. Instead
men and women are sacrificed to the idols of profit and
consumption; it is the 'culture of waste'. If you break a
computer it is a tragedy, but poverty, the needs, the
drama of so many people end up becoming the norm.
If in so many parts of the world there are children who
have nothing to eat, that's not news; it seems normal. It
cannot be this way! Yet these things become the norm:
that some homeless people die of cold on the streets is
not news. In contrast, a 10 point drop on the stock
markets of some cities, is a tragedy. Thus people are
disposed of, as if they were trash.
This 'culture of waste' tends to become the common
mentality that infects everyone. Human life, the person,
is no longer perceived as a primary value to be
respected and protected, especially if
poor or
disabled, if not yet useful-such as the unborn child-or
no longer needed-such as the elderly. This culture of
waste has made us insensitive even to the waste and
disposal of food, which is even more despicable when
October 6, 2013
all over the world, unfortunately, many individuals and
families are suffering from hunger and malnutrition.
The food we throw away is stolen from the poor.
Rev. Robert DeJulio
