How could we have reached this level of indifference?
How is it that we allow the “throwaway culture” – in which millions of men and women are worth nothing compared to economic goods – how is it that we allow this culture to dominate our lives, our cities, our way of life?
Our necks are going to get stiff from looking the other way so we don’t have to see this situation.
Please, let’s stop making invisible those who are on the margins of society, whether it’s due to poverty, addictions, mental illness or disability.
Let’s focus on accepting them, on welcoming all the people who need it.
The “culture of welcoming,” of hospitality, of providing shelter, of giving a home, of offering love, of giving human warmth.
Let us pray for those people on the margins of society in subhuman living conditions, that they may not be neglected by institutions and never be cast out.
