Communication Grace Shame

Shame is a grace we ask for

By on August 30, 2021

The confessional shouldn’t be a torture chamber.  Some confessors can be excessively curious. To be explicit about details that are not necessary. Shame is a grace we ask for; it is good, positive, because it makes us humble. But in dialogue with a confessor we need to be listened to, not interrogated.

All of us religious leaders, that we never use God’s name to foment wars. Let us stand by our people, the workers, the humble, and fight together with them so that integral human development may become a reality. Let us build bridges of love.
