On one side are its transcendent beliefs, high morals and symbols and, on the other, its deformation or misuse by those pursuing their own narrow interests, not the common good. If the wrong path is chosen, society will be the poorer for it and the destination will be hard to reach.

Society and religion, as a fountain of some of our cherished values, have had a symbiotic relationship for millennia. Human beings — believers or nonbelievers — usually seek guidance to give meaning and order to their lives and to prepare them for what is to follow life.

altThe Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, are experiencing “terrorism of previously unimaginable proportions” in which the perpetrators seem to have absolutely no regard for the value of human life, Pope Francis has said.

“It seems that the awareness of the value of human life has been lost; it seems that the person does not count and can be sacrificed to other interests. And all of this, unfortunately, with the indifference of many,” he said during a special meeting at the Vatican on the Middle East.
