Indifference

“On both the individual and communitarian levels, indifference to one’s neighbor, born of indifference to God, finds expression in disinterest and a lack of engagement, which only help to prolong situations of injustice and grave social imbalance. These in turn can lead to conflicts or, in any event, generate a climate of dissatisfaction which risks exploding sooner or later into acts of violence and insecurity.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Do you ever close your heart to the needs of others or turn aside to avoid encountering other people's problems? How might the Holy Spirit help you overcome these times of indifference?
