World Ozone day – Sept.16th ( 1987 – 2012) 25 years!

 A reminder to each one of us to do the needful ourselves or cooperate with people with such sense so that the hole which has become a gap may be kept under control.

Go Green! Or NO GREEN?

In our days there is a constant tendency to widen gaps/zones  not only in nature but  between peoples, groups, religions and nations. Pope Benedict in his visit to Lebanon advocates “to import ideas of peace, creativity and find solutions for accepting  everyone in his otherness, instead of arms” that negate life. In spite of the turmoil around there is positive trend, a growing desire for more democracy, more liberty and more co – operation...

Lord, Creator and Master of the Universe, we thank you for the loving gift from your hands, with the authority to master it and multiply.

Perhaps we under the pretext of mastering are deploying it of its resources, thus giving an opening for elements to enter that is harmful to our well being.

Guide us to bridge the dividing harmful zones both in nature and relationships. Let us lessen the harm we do to ourselves, instead venture to preserve, treasure and foster all that is good and needed for the present and the future generations.
