DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE
SHARE LENT CAMPAIGN: 3rd Symbol: A large feather. This feather symbolizes Indigenous knowledge and culture. Indigenous peoples have
always lived in harmony with nature, caring for it
and taking only what they need. They see the
Earth not as something to exploit, but as a Mother
who protects and nurtures them and that they
protect and nurture in return. Yesica Patiachi
Tayor, of the Harakbut people in Amazonian
Peru, says, “From our ancestors, we gain our
vision of the world, that the forest is our house,
that the river is our brother, that all the animals
and beings that live in the jungle, in the works
with CAAAP, the Amazon Centre of
Anthropology and Practical Application, to
protect the rainforest and the rights of its
Indigenous inhabitants. CAAAP trains Indigenous
elders, women and youths in community
organizing and the defence of territorial rights.
With its support, young Indigenous leaders,
including Yesiuca, joined the president of
CAAAP, Bishop Alfredo Vizcarra, in
participating in the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-
THE WATER ROCK: it is possible to find water
in the driest desert. There are limestone springs in
the Sinai. Eventually a crust forms over them,
blocking the flow. Anyone who had lived in the
area for several years would be likely to recognize
the signs of such springs. Moses only had to break
through the crust to release the water. He becomes frustrated at the slow response and shows a lack of trust in God.
LIVING WATER: it is often said that Eskimos –
Native Americans of Alaska and Canada have
many different words for snow. These words describe different kinds of snow. A similar
diversity of words for water is true of people
of the Middle Eastern desert. Today, Jesus
speaks of “living water”. Literally this is
“flowing” water as opposed to that which
accumulates in pools or wells. Standing
water can become stagnant. It becomes less
desirable in taste that water which has
flowed from a spring or river. The Samaritan
woman offers to draw water from the well,
but Jesus suggests that He can offer her the
living variety. Apparently He is referring to
the water of Baptism which allows each of
the baptized to become sources of life
PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL: For the
Indigenous and traditional peoples who are
on the frontlines of the struggle to preserve
and safeguard the precious habitats of our
common home, that their rights may be
respected. We pray to the Lord.
