“…we are touched by the poverty, inequality, exclusion, violence, and environmental destruction that are present in today’s world. We recognise with greater clarity the interconnectedness of global realities and the impact that these have on our local situations. We are more aware of the marginalizing effects of globalization and of cultures of dominance and exclusion.”
How aware am I of the injustices of our world and of the interconnectedness of global realities and local situations?
“We suffer the pain of our peoples. With them, and from this depth, we enter in the Open Heart of Christ, the wellspring that satisfies our thirst. From our contemplation of the Pierced Heart of Jesus in the heart of wounded humanity flows the desire to commit ourselves with greater passion and compassion to justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.”
Do I pray for light to understand injustice and to seek ways that I can commit myself to justice, peace, and the integrity of creation?
“The pursuit of justice, peace and the integrity of creation permeates all aspects of our lives.”
