Change in lifestyle

July 18, 2019

206. A change in lifestyle could bring healthy pressure to bear on those who wield political, economic and social power. This is what consumer movements accomplish by boycotting certain products. They prove successful in changing the way businesses operate, forcing them to consider their environmental footprint and their patterns of production. When social pressure affects their earnings, businesses clearly have to find ways to produce differently. This shows us the great need for a sense of social responsibility on the part of consumers.

“Purchasing is always a moral – and not simply economic – act.”(Caritas in Veritate) Today, in a word, “the issue of environmental degradation challenges us to examine our lifestyle.”(Message for the 2010 World Day of Peace)

Fr. Juan J. Sosa

St. Joseph Church

One of the most important aspects of the pastoral life of the Church today is that of hospitality. As Christ welcomes us in Word and Sacrament, we are mandated to welcome those who approach the Church to grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord. In fact, we are the bridge between those who search for God, and the God who reveals himself in the Bible and becomes present in the Sacraments.

This call to hospitality is unveiled clearly in today’s readings. Abraham, in the First Reading, opens his household and his heart to new visitors who bring him a most important gift: the announcement of a birth when he and his wife are childless.

What a significant gift for the continuation of his lineage! These visitors were truly from the Lord, for whom nothing is impossible! In the Gospel, Martha and Mary receive Jesus into their home. They inspire us to grow in two of the most important elements of our daily journey—prayer and work. With these two elements we can help build the Church today and always.

How do we integrate our life of prayer into our daily lives of work and service?
