Our duty is to continue to insist, in
the present international context,
that the human person and human
dignity are not simply catchwords,
but pillars for creating shared rules
and structures capable of passing
beyond purely pragmatic or technical approaches in order to eliminate
divisions and to bridge existing differences. In this regard, there is a
need to oppose the shortsighted economic interests and the mentality of
power of a relative few who exclude
the majority of the world’s peoples,
generating poverty and marginalization and causing a breakdown in society. There is likewise a need to
combat the corruption which creates
privileges for some and injustices for
many others.

In a world like this, media can help us
to feel closer to one another, creating a
sense of the unity of the human family
which can in turn inspire solidarity and
serious efforts to ensure a more dignified life for all. Good communication
helps us to grow closer, to know one another better, and ultimately, to grow in
unity. The walls which divide us can be
broken down only if we are prepared to
listen and learn from on e another.
Pope Francis 1/24/14)
BERKELEY
Last week, when Jesus referred to the destruction of the temple, the account from today’s first reading is what would have come to
the minds of his listeners. But, as Jesus was
speaking on a deeper level, so does today’s first
reading. In the first paragraph we hear that Israel had, in effect, “fallen” already through its
infidelity to the covenant. Lest we get too cozy,
this account reminds us that God, though just,
loving, and merciful, is capable of punishing sin
when that sin is unrepentant. But we are also
reminded that God, rich in mercy, anoints individuals to be vessels of salvation as well (in Hebrew, King Cyrus of Persia is called
“messiah”). In the Gospel reading, we hear of
another Messiah being “lifted up” for our salvation in one of the best‑known passages from the
New Testament. As Lent concludes and we enter Holy Week, we need to keep our gaze steadfast upon the cross of Christ, the Son of God
who came into the world to raise us who had
fallen.

La semana pasada, cuando Jesús se refería a
la destrucción del Templo, el relato de la primera lectura de hoy es lo que les hubiera venido a
la mente a sus oyentes. Pero, dado que Jesús
estaba hablando en un sentido más profundo, así
también debemos entender la primera lectura de
hoy. Escuchamos en el primer párrafo que Israel
en efecto ya había “caído” a causa de sus infidelidades contra la alianza. Para no ponernos demasiado cómodos, este relato nos recuerda que
Dios, aunque justo, amoroso y misericordioso,
es capaz de castigar el pecado cuando es un pecado no arrepentido. Pero también nos recuerda
que Dios, rico en misericordia, unge a individuos para que sean a su vez instrumentos de
salvación (en hebreo al Rey Ciro de Persia se le
denomina “mesías”). En la lectura del Evangelio, escuchamos de otro Mesías que debe ser
“levantado” por nuestra salvación, en uno de los
pasajes más conocidos del Nuevo Testamento.
Al terminar la Cuaresma y entrar en la Semana
Santa, debemos mantener nuestra mirada fija en
la cruz de Cristo, el Hijo de Dios que vino al
mundo para levantarnos a todos los que habíaCopyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

COMPENDIUM OF THE
SOCIAL DOCTRINE
OF THE CHURCH
4. Discovering that they are loved by God,
people come to understand their own transcendent dignity, they learn not to be satisfied with only themselves but to encounter
their neighbor in a network of relationships
that are ever more authentically human.
Men and women who are made “new” by
the love of God are able to change the
rules and the quality of relationships,
transforming even social structures. They
are people capable of bringing peace
where there is conflict, of building and nurturing fraternal relationships where there is
hatred, of seeking justice where there prevails the exploitation of man by man. Only
love is capable of radically transforming
the relationships that men maintain among
themselves. This is the perspective that allows every person of good will to perceive
the broad horizons of justice and human
development in truth and goodness.
76. The Church's social doctrine avails itself of contributions from all branches of
knowledge, whatever their source, and has
an important interdisciplinary dimension.
“In order better to incarnate the one truth
about man in different and constantly
changing social, economic and political
contexts, this teaching enters into dialogue
with the various disciplines concerned with
man. It assimilates what these disciplines
have to contribute”. The social doctrine
makes use of the significant contributions
of philosophy as well as the descriptive
contributions of the human sciences.
