Based on the
Vatican 2 document
"Gaudium et Spes" (Church in the world) 91
This third last article of "Gaudium et Spes"
expresses the hope that GS
- will help people better understand our human destiny
- will help people make a better world
- will help promote a stronger sense of belonging to the human family
Recently I met a drug addict in a prison hospital
....maybe his sixth or seventh time to be in prison for using drugs...
and he said sadly "I don't want to keep on living. I've got nothing to live for"
We Christians have the job of helping people like
- to better understand the meaning of life
- to pick up the pieces of his life and start again
- to realise he belongs to a family which cares about him
Jesus, please help me do a little
to help people whose world is a mess
