Making sense our our economic times

Archbishop Philip Wilson of Adelaide recalled that the love of God for every person never changes and lasts forever: “This Christmas, Christians all over the world will draw strength from knowing that far from being an anonymous cog in the economic machinery, each human being is precious beyond understanding, having been individually created, known, and loved by God. Indeed, God loves us so much that he became human.” Every member of the faithful is called to welcome Jesus Christ in his heart and in his life, so they can “begin to make sense of the things happening around us. Hope, joy and peace begin to take the edges off our anxiety and fear.” (PA) (Agenzia Fides 19/12/2008)
