Thought for the day: The banking crisis is only one example of a wider “honesty deficit” in public life. As a result, the story of dishonest management will not lack contemporary echoes. It also means that the shock of story, the manager continues to fix the books for his own benefit, is just as much a shock today as it would have been in first-century Palestine. If that were not enough, the ironic teaching drawn in v. 9 borders on the sarcastic, not to say caustic. No missing the meaning, in any case! But what is the meaning? It can’t be simply to copy that distressing example of the manager. To act, not to delay, seems to be at the centre. Prayer: I truly believe, and I know, God of our hearts, that you love and desire all that I am. May your great love penetrate even the darkest parts of my life that I may know true conversion of heart and love you with my whole self. Fr Kieran O’Mahony

Season of Creation 2022 continues until Oct 4th, Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Soil: Every minute we lose the equivalent of thirty football pitches of fertile soil. When we don’t look after it, soil can lose its ability to support plant growth, become contaminated or erode away. Climate change, the spread of intensive agriculture, deforestation and industrial activity have accelerated the loss of soils in almost every country in the world. ‘The only thing that stands between us and extinction is six inches of soil and the fact that it rains’. (Anna Krzywoszynska, Univ. of Sheffield)

Urnaí: ‘Má theastaíonn uainn saol suáilceach a chaitheamh, tá sé riachtanach go nglacfaimis le glao Dhia agus an domhan a chruthaigh sé a chaomhnú; níl an dara rogha againn mar Chríostaithe tiomanta, an dualgas seo a chur i leataobh uainn.’ (Laudato Si’ 217)

“Let us be silent that we
may hear the whisper of God.”
