"We Have Fallen Into Globalized Indifference" -Pope FrancisSubmitted by Liberty and Truth on Tue, 07/09/2013 - 13:22
“Adam, where are you?” Cain, where is your brother?”
Pope Francis warned of a culture of comfort that makes one think only of themselves and become deaf to the cries of those suffering, resulting in a “globalization of indifference.”
“In this globalized world,” the Pope said, “we have fallen into globalized indifference. We have become used to the suffering of others: it doesn’t affect me; it doesn’t concern me; it’s none of my business!”
The fruits of this globalized indifference, he stated, has robbed all of the ability to weep for the suffering of others...
“Father, we ask your pardon for those who are complacent and closed amid comforts which have deadened their hearts,” the Pope prayed. “We beg your forgiveness for those who by their decisions on the global level have created situations that lead to these tragedies. Forgive us, Lord!”
“Today too, Lord, we hear you asking: "Adam, where are you?" "Where is the blood of your brother?"
