DARK CLOUDS OVER A CLOSED WORLD
LACKING A PLAN FOR EVERYONE
A “throwaway” world
20. This way of discarding others can take a variety of forms, such as an obsession with reducing labour costs with no concern for its grave consequences, since the unemployment that it directly generates leads to the expansion of poverty. In addition, a readiness to discard others finds expression in vicious attitudes that we thought long past, such as racism, which retreats underground only to keep reemerging. Instances of racism continue to shame us, for they show that our supposed social progress is not as real or definitive as we think.
And the constant and insistent claim “I have proof” means nothing when all is fabricated.Bishop Patrick J. Zurek

maga-catholics in fear explain that when “social progress is not as real or definitive” as our president claims, it is due to the “apparently inexplicable way,” the “children of light” (whom they say) “constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity”, (like the wheat flour in the dough), “are held hostage” by “the children of darkness”, (whom they say) “represent an absolute minority”, (like the yeast)???
comfortable catholics in fear that they are not able to explain why the mustard seed doesn’t appear to becoming a fully grown large bush, or the yeast leavening the dough; “fall into the temptation of the ‘wicked’, that is, of living, and perhaps also of praying, as if God does not exist, and as if the poor do not exist”….
socialist-catholics in fear explain that the reason why “social progress is not as real or definitive as we think” is because the mustard seed has died and the yeast is no good; thus they lose their catholicism for socialism…
Catholics in LOVE walk in the LORD’s ways knowing that how and when the mustard seed grows or dough is leavened is a great mystery of GOD that we all understand until someone tries to explain it!
