Holidays – 12 May 2007
With tomorrow being Mother’s Day, I was thinking about the
increasing, out-of-control commercialization surrounding holidays.
Two TV news personalities were talking about the money – in the
billions – that will be spent on this year’s Mother’s Day. The one who
thought that the most money would be spent on flowers as gifts was
wrong. It turns out that taking Mother to a restaurant was number one on
the list, while flowers were second.
Think about it: Celebrating motherhood by gorging on the tortured
remains and secretions of other mothers and their children! Do you see
the disconnect – the chasm – here?
When will humans stop ruining every holiday (“holy” day?!) with their
insatiable lust for more and more products of cruelty? With “decadence”
considered a desirable description that sells – well, what do you
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
