When there are children in so many parts of the world who have nothing to eat, that is not news, it seems just normal. When some homeless people freeze to death or starve on the street doesn’t make news. These things become normal.

Someone who dies is not news, but lowering income by ten points is a tragedy. (Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy)

Its more than a month that I am in K JC. I am enjoying my life here.
Being here I feel the most often quoted word in the house is ‘tradition and tradition’. Whenever I hear this word the image that comes to my mind is of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, who attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions.
However, in the beginning of the movie he makes this statement ‘Traditions, I will tell you how all that got started…., but I don’t know.’
Every action can be interpreted by different people differently. Often the person is moved by his experience of the past, so to say our judgements are the revealing of the self. Look at the judgements one make and we can what he/she is…
“Free yourself from all the offences you have committed and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why should you die, Israel? I do not want the death of anyone, word of Yahweh, but that you be converted and live!” (Ezk. 18: 31- 32)
