Human qualities good and bad. Family Thought: Heritage and Creation. September 11

Dumisani was attending a multicultural high school which had formerly been Catholic. There were Catholics and other Christians but also Jewish, Hindu and Muslim boys and girls.  They learned a lot from each other’s religious practices and feasts but Dumisani shared at home later, “what is most interesting is that when we read from our scriptures and compared it to other faiths there was so much in common. Our LO teacher had us compare the list of negative qualities that Paul wrote about in Colossians 3, ‘Put away anger, wrath, malice, slander and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his practices.’  Of course those kind of negative things are the same for all of us, whatever our religion.”

Pope Francis: The book of nature is one and indivisible  and includes the environment, life, sexuality, the family, social relations and so forth.  It follows that the deterioration of nature is closely connected to the culture which shapes human co-existence.  LS6
