This whole issue of the environment and the potential threat from the way we live, begs for a radical and generous response from Christians. We need leaders who can point the way and encourage the prophetic ones to break new ground. Are we so identified with the materialistic culture or so intertwined with the market economy that we cannot bear witness to the freedom of detachment? Leaders must help us discern the signs of the times, they must encourage and support prophetic witness - Fr Michael Whelan
Too materialistic to accept lifestyle changes?
