We belong to a church populated by caring individuals who give their lives for others: priests and nuns martyred in El Salvador; missionaries struggling in the remotest parts of
the world; peace activists challenging the consciences of nations; sisters caring lovingly for the sick and dying.
What would happen if all of us cared, really cared, about our brothers and sisters who are hungry, homeless, helpless, mistreated, victimized, suffering, unemployed, impoverished, threatened, rejected? What would happen if all of us became good shepherds and cared? Wouldn’t the consequences be monumental if everyone in the Christian community became a good shepherd?
“No one can remain indifferent to the lot of our brothers and sisters who are still buried in wretchedness, and victims of insecurity, slaves of ignorance.” Pope Paul VI, Populorum Progressio (1967) 74
