Conquer Your Anger by Learning to Discern It

Those of us who claim choleric temperaments (myself included) know well the difficulty of navigating the tempests of anger. At times, there is a sense of homeostasis within us, in which anger subsides and gives way to more productive or deeper emotions. The sea is calm. But often, people or circumstances disrupt our interior peace […] Source: Conquer Your Anger by Learning to Discern ItShare this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new...

Venezuela – Os religiosos no País: “heróis ao lado dos pobres da Venezuela”

Source: Venezuela – Os religiosos no País: “heróis ao lado dos pobres da Venezuela”   (ANS – Caracas) – Portas abaixadas, prateleiras vazias, supermercados desertos… Filas intermináveis para comprar pão, sabão, remédio, bens de primeira necessidade que agora são de luxo para a quase totalidade da população. A crise socioeconômica na Venezuela tornou-se também uma crise alimentar e humanitária. Antigamente, a Venezuela fora o Estado mais rico da América do Sul, mas políticas econômicas desastrosas, que miraram apenas o petróleo e desestimularam outros setores produtivos, transformaram em poucos anos uma nação próspera num Pais com fome: os níveis de inflação estão próximos ao 5.000% ao ano, os comerciantes são obrigados a elevar os preços ao menos duas vezes por semana. “Um quilo de leite em pó custa mais do que o salário médio mensal. Como podem as mães venezuelanas dar de comer aos seus filhos?”, perguntou há poucos dias o Card. Jorge Urosa Savino, arcebispo de Caracas, numa conferência de imprensa organizada pela Fundação Pontifícia “Ajuda à Igreja que Sofre”. Segundo a Caritas nacional seriam ao menos 16,8% as crianças gravemente subnutridas: a desnutrição já ceifou vítimas entre os mais pobres e muitos estão morrendo ou estão em perigo. Nesse...

Venezuela – Venezuela tiene hambre

Source: Venezuela – Venezuela tiene hambre   (ANS – Caracas) – Las persianas cerradas, los estantes vacíos, los supermercados desiertos… Se ven colas interminables para comprar pan, jabón, medicamentos, necesidades básicas que ahora se han convertido en un lujo para casi toda la población. Familias enteras hurgando en la basura buscando comida, personas sin hogar de todas las edades, mendigos y niños de la calle. Esta son las imágenes de un escenario hecho de pobreza, violencia y abandono. En Caracas, donde la tasa de delincuencia es muy alta, pero también en el resto del territorio donde, incluso en las zonas rurales, no hay alimentos y la gente está desesperada. Venezuela fue una vez el estado más rico de América del Sur, sin embargo, tomó solo unos pocos años en convertirse de un país próspero a un país hambriento. Después de 25 años de su debut en la escena mundial con un golpe de Estado, Chávez que está muerto, sobrevive la demagogia de su sucesor, Nicolás Maduro. Venezuela ya no tiene la fuerza para soportar el peso de este legado sobre sus hombros: los niveles de inflación son cercanos al 5.000% anual, una cifra aterradora. La Encuesta Nacional de Condiciones de...
