We live in a globalized world and we are all consumers, which is often written about, by myself included, as a condition of loss for cultures, for individuals, for the Church, for richness of humanity. But we live in a world where grace and charity can pulse through the same channels as money, greed, property, vanities, guns and bullets. How we see ourselves, our neighbors, our continents, and our globe, is a question of how we choose to orient our heart to a fundamental option: positive or negative.

In face of the disruptive power of suffering beyond any one person(s) to make  disappear, it is only epistemic mercy that transcends the realities and differences that are impasses to our flourishing: as humans, at being human.Image
