How can we become agents of healing and harmony?
It was a delight to be at the Frederic Village Parade and see the vibrancy of youth and adults participating with smiles and enthusiasm and people waving them from both sides of the road. Giving the message at the Ecumenical Service jointly conducted by St. Luke, Cross Walk and St. Dominic Churches, I mentioned that Frederic Village is beautiful with Farms, Forests and Friendly people. Just as Jesus calm the see and was an instrument of healing and harmony, “how can we become instruments of healing and harmony” in our family, church and the world around”? Today’s gospel passage clearly shows how Jesus reaches out the little girl against all odds of opposition, ridicule and distrust, and make her heal and help people arise with hope ad surprise. In the recently published encyclical, Laudate Si, on Climate Change Pope Francis makes five main points.
1. Climate change is real, and it’s getting worse
2. Human beings are a major contributor to climate change
3. Climate change disproportionately affects the poor
4. We can and must make things better
5. Individuals can help, but politicians must lead the charge.
The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she “groans in travail” (Rom 8:22).“Every effort to protect and improve our world entails profound changes in lifestyles, models of production and consumption, and the established structures of power which today govern societies.”Pope Francis reminds us that “Human beings, while capable of the worst, are also capable of rising above themselves, choosing again what is good, and making a new start”.
For our parishes, we have made a new start with the Summit and the follow up steps are given in the green sheet insert. Please continue the momentum of creating vibrant parish communities”
