Post No. 114

May 30, 2013

Our sense of the person as an image of God has been eroded by the Cult of the Disposable Commodity. The marketing was focused yet imperceptible, sliding in like a wedge. You only realise what happened when you look back.

I greatly admire the Bishop of Gozo, Mgr Mario Grech. In this day and age he is the perfect antidote to the sly and underhanded deceit of the Devil.

He is a regular candidate for media ridicule. To my knowledge, his career as a media target blossomed in the run up to the divorce referendum, when he quoted Christ, when he said Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.(Mt7:15)

The rest is history as they say. Whatever he says attracts flak from all (or nearly all) the local media.

I have another quote for him (And for all those who strive to do the right thing.)

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.(Mt 5:10)
