Action Alert!

from the mouths of babes ... and bishops

Catholic bishop:

The Group of 8 met last week. The eight richest nations in the world. Have you read what they decided? Not really much for the benefit of all the people of the earth. The United States wasn't even willing to sign an accord to try to lessen the damage we're doing to the environment through human activity that's bringing a warming of the whole planet that eventually will destroy us. No, that would hurt our economy, the president said. It's selfishness, greed. Isn't that what Jesus says. The word falls in that kind of ground and it gets choked. We don't listen.

I'm confident that what Isaiah said, what Paul said, what Jesus said, it's true! God has sent the word among us and that word tells us how to change this world so that it will not be a place where evil has the upper hand. That it will change it so that it will be a world of peace, true peace will prevail.

Catholic second grader:

Which one comes closer to sharing what you understand as the Catholic faith?
