Argentinean bishop says sins of omission are also sign of rejection of God

.- Bishop Jorge Luis Lona of San Luis, Argentina, said this week “the rejection of God is not only conveyed by our evil actions, but also by sins of omission, which always suppress the good works we were called to do.”

“What counts are the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.  It’s not only giving; it’s giving of ourselves.  Giving for the good of the body and soul of one who is in need,” the bishop added.

Bishop Lona noted that the “call of Christ to recognize Him in the least of those who need help” is increasingly more urgent.  “Children, teenagers, and young people are the ones being incited to an early disordering of their sexuality, thus terribly threatening to leave them handicapped for true love,” he said.

Bishop Lona stated that “young people urgently need teaching, counsel and loving correction.”  If these things cannot be found in their own homes, he said, young people should seek them out in the greater Catholic community.
