.- Archbishop Domingo Castagna of Corrientes, Argentina, reminded Argentineans this week that the Gospels “do not teach one how to be an expert in politics and the economy” but, “to those who are open to receiving it, they do provide necessary truth.”

According to the Archbishop,  “all authentic endeavors” are based on this truth, and “from it they obtain saving and transforming grace.”  Therefore, “it is necessary that our people, including our leaders, train themselves in humility in order to obtain wisdom.”

“Some of the more popular expressions of today are almost like modern pharisaism.  We need to remember, as Jesus taught, the greatness of being humble,” the Archbishop said.

In a message to the faithful he added, “Without the grace of Christ one cannot achieve this,” since “His presence pushes aside the great obstacles that keep us from moving forward and that keep us from improving human ways of thinking.”

“Men and women, who know they can’t go on and yet are loved by God the Father, cry out for help.  They feel almost completely alone, and their wounded nature suffers and nobody shows them compassion.  God, the Father who awaits them, hears their silent cries and offers them healing,” he said.
