World Poverty Day 17 Oct 2008

On this day, we can make a difference by thinking about our lifestyles, about our commitment to justice and what we are doing about it.

World Poverty Day should actually be high in the agenda of faith communities, but we shamefully simply wait to be the next gospel or ecclesial tycoon, flying around the world in our private jet. We also fail to unmasked the false gospel parading as the panacea for the world's poor, whilst in actual fact it has been a mask hiding our true intents, self-enrichment and material greed, in service of global capitalism. Hopefully today can be a reminder to recommit ourselves in the quest for justice.
