Technical remedies alone are not enough

September 21, 2017

111. Ecological culture cannot be reduced to a series of urgent and partial responses to the immediate problems of pollution, environmental decay and the depletion of natural resources. There needs to be a distinctive way of looking at things, a way of thinking, policies, an educational program, a lifestyle and a spirituality which together generate resistance to the assault of the technocratic paradigm. Otherwise, even the best ecological initiatives can find themselves caught up in the same globalized logic. To seek only a technical remedy to each environmental problem which comes up is to separate what is in reality interconnected and to mask the true and deepest problems of the global system.

Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

From the first reading to the Gospel today, he key theme is forgiveness. The spirit of reconciliation grows out of compassionate and merciful hearts, and in lives that embody the Christian praxis that Jesus Christ taught us from the cross. His redemption engages Christians in a different way of looking at reality and at their neighbors, a way that frequently opposes the manner in which cultural traditions tend to resolve conflicts among nations and peoples. As Christians, we are called to deny the way of vengeance and embrace the way of forgiveness.

This message can serve as the theme for community groups discussions this week in the context of social responsibility issues, such as capital punishment, the dignity of life from conception to death, treatment for the elderly, and domestic abuse.

How can Church members help heal such evils in our world?
