THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In the second reading from St James today we hear of a condemnation
of the rich who exploit the weak. This theme carries on in the gospel
where Jesus has harsh words for anyone who would try bring down "the
little ones". It is a lesson in tolerance. As we approach the end of
this annual celebration of the Season of Creation let today’s gospel be
a call to care for the weak and vulnerable.
Through our exploration of the earth’s goods, it is the poorest of
the world who suffer. Let us always be conscious of our responsibility
to be stewards of creation, to connect more deeply with the wondrous
world around us, to take action against all that threatens our natural
In a few days we celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis (October 4th),
patron saint of ecology. Perhaps by hosting a blessing for animals, a
local clean up, trying to go plastic free, we can mark this special time
in some way and embrace our role as stewards of creation.
"God of love, show us out place in this world as channels of your
love for all the creatures of this earth, for not one of them is
forgotten in your sight. Enlighten those who possess power and money
that they may avoid the sin of indifference, that they may love the
common good, advance the weak, and care for a world in which we live.
The poor and the earth are crying out." Laudato Si, 245
