May 5. Joan said, “Why are there so many floods all over the world these days? Hurricanes, cyclones, monsoons have got stronger, bigger and more destructive. Climate change is blamed on our human destructive actions towards the environment. It makes me think of Noah’s ark times, when innocent animals also had to suffer, because of the wickedness of the people. There are actually many stories like The Flood in other cultures too. But history also repeats itself, and we know that it was necessary for God to intervene again, and so God sent the Messiah. Still looking into the message, isn’t history repeating itself again today, with the most vulnerable members of creation suffering the effects the most?”
Reflect, share and act. Scripture. Paul stood up and said, “Men of Israel, and you that fear God, listen. God chose our father and made the people great. He led them out of Egypt. He bore with them in the wilderness, gave them their land, kings and prophets. Of this posterity God has brought to Israel a Saviour Jesus. Acts 13:13-25. Pope Francis: The lack of historical memory is a serious shortcoming in our society. A mentality that says, “then was then and now is now” is ultimately immature. Knowing and judging past events is the only way to build a meaningful future. AL193. Pray. Mary, Mother of the suffering due to climate change, pray for us.
