Are we really dead??
“The one who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars says this: ‘I know your works, that you have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead.’” ~Revelations 3:1
This line fits us more than we can imagine. We have just celebrated the 25thanniversary of the martyrdom of the Jesuits and their 2 colleagues at the UCA in San Salvador. In relation to that celebration, I read a statement from one of Ignacio Ellacuría’s last talks that brought those words from Revelations straight home to me:
“From my point of view – and this may be simultaneously somewhat prophetic and paradoxical – the United States is in a much worse situation than Latin America. Because the United States has a solution, but, in my opinion, it is a bad solution, both for them and for the world in general.” ~Ignacio Ellacuría, S.J.
What is that solution? The capitalist market system we live in and the democracy that governs it (and vice versa).
Why is that a bad solution both for us and for the world in general?…
