People are thrown aside as if they were trash

By on January 12, 2021

If there are children in so many parts of the world to have nothing to eat, that is not news; it seems normal. It cannot be so! That some homeless people should freeze to death on the street – this doesn’t make news. On the contrary, when the stock market dropped 10 points in some cities, it constitutes a tragedy. People are thrown aside as if they were trash.
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy

During the Season of #Lent, the Holy Spirit drives us too, like Jesus, into the desert (Mk 1:12-15). It is not a physical place, but rather an existential dimension in which we can be silent and listen to the word of God, so that a true conversion might be effected in us.
