more on sharing


While the poor of the world continue knocking on the doors of the rich, the world of affluence runs the risk of no longer hearing those knocks, on account of a conscience that can no longer distinguish what is human.

~ Pope Benedict XVI ~

from his 2009 encyclical, Caritas in Veritate


When we don't share, we risk the loss of our hearing and our humanity--thus sayeth the Pope. So be it.

This is so true. We must begin to open our hearts more to others. Share what we have. There was always enough for one more at the table when I was little.
I don't know what happened to that idea.

Always be conscious of others, regardless of economic status or circumstances.
