In Times of Unprecedented crises how can Catholic Social Teaching help us?
Dear brother bishops, dear siblings all, it is an honour and a pleasure to address you this evening, even if remotely, to celebrate Trócaire’s 50th anniversary under this question which serves as my title. I commend our organizers. The theme is compelling. And, without doubt, the challenge it highlights is urgent. This earth, our common home, and the local and global relationships which nurture and sustain it, are indeed confronted by a time of unprecedented fragility.
This makes the course we are called to navigate today uniquely complex, some might even say treacherous!
