Technical remedies alone are not enough

September 21, 2017

111. Ecological culture cannot be reduced to a series of urgent and partial responses to the immediate problems of pollution, environmental decay and the depletion of natural resources. There needs to be a distinctive way of looking at things, a way of thinking, policies, an educational program, a lifestyle and a spirituality which together generate resistance to the assault of the technocratic paradigm. Otherwise, even the best ecological initiatives can find themselves caught up in the same globalized logic. To seek only a technical remedy to each environmental problem which comes up is to separate what is in reality interconnected and to mask the true and deepest problems of the global system.

Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Why do we resent the well-being of others?

In today’s Gospel, the workers who are called to work early in the morning resent those who were called at the end of the day and were paid the same, and they resent the generosity of the owner of the vineyard. So focused on the money the last group received, they cannot share in the joy of people who have found a job. This parable teaches us about God’s paradoxical generosity and mercy. God always welcomes those who seek his presence and refuge, regardless of whether it be early in their lifetime or later on in years. As Pope Francis would say, we cannot allow ourselves to enter into a dialogue with the enemy that consumes our hearts with envy, allowing hatred and resentment to take over our feelings.

This Gospel should prompt hospitality ministers to evaluate the way they welcome those who enter into our church buildings on weekends.

  • How are visitors treated?
  • Are they invited into the liturgical assembly with the other members of the assembly?
  • Do our ministers introduce these newcomers to our priests, other lay ministers, and volunteers?
