From Pope Francis’ Little Book of Wisdom
The current crisis is not only economical and financial but is rooted in an ethical and anthropological crisis. Concern with the idols of power, profit, and money, rather than with the value of the human person, has become a basic norm for functioning and a crucial criterion for organization. We have forgotten and are still forgetting that over and above business, logic, and the parameters of the market is the human being; and that something is men and women in as much as they aare human beings by virtue of their profound dignity: to offer them the possibility of living a dignified life and of actively participating in the common good. Benedict XVI reminded us that precisely because it is human, all human activity, including economic activity, must be ethically structured and governed. We must return to the centrality of the human being, to a more ethical vision of activities and of human relationships, without the fear of losing something.
We are delighted to welcome Fr. Aidan Peter home! It will be wonderful to, once again, read his personal words of wisdom.
