Indifference, reflection by Sr. Kathleen Mary Donohue

Perhaps one of the greatest sins of our time is that of indifference-indifference to poverty, war, homelessness, human slavery, persecution of Christians and others for their faith, substance abuse.  We watch the news or check the Internet and become immune to these happenings in our world as they are so overwhelming.  We comfort ourselves by thinking we are only one person in a sea of indifference because it is all too big for us to fathom. A Lenten practice might be to make an effort to become more aware of what is happening and to ask our God heal the hearts of the oppressors while giving strength to the oppressed.
