Buenos Aires, Argentina, Sep 22, 2005 / 22:00 pm
Archbishop Domingo Castagna of Corrientes, Argentina, called on Christians this week to spread good and live exemplary lives in response to the scandals and foolishness in today’s society and culture.
When the spiritual and cultural well being of the people is given first priority in society, “the air will begin to clear,” the bishop stated.
In addition Bishop Castagna stated, “The Lord looks for mankind to do his work. He does not want man to become drowsy in his lazy outlook on life. He understands that people will not work if no one hires them, and therefore He continues to hire them even at dusk.”
“Perhaps the lack of quiet reflection cultivated in the family and in the school has led to a marked lack of conscience which tends to dangerously spread. One example, perhaps a little superficial and insignificant, is the lack of discipline on the public roadways both by pedestrians and drivers,” the bishop added.
