This week’s Graffiti was found on Ulica Bozego Milosierdzia (Divine Mercy Street).
Here in Europe the media has become saturated with reactions to the Syrian refugee crisis. In Poland, a country that is 99% white and almost completely catholic, the debate is heated. Urged by the Pope to provide Christian charity and political discourse, the other side warns of “Islamitization”and a threat to the Polish culture.
Conversation among the people I have contact with here in Krakow reveals strong emotions. Smart people are saying fearful things. The faithful are struggling to reconcile their commitment to the Church and the desire to keep Poland homogenous. One thing is for sure, the mass migration of 4 million Syrians from their home country is an issue that demands a reaction- they’re here, they’re near, they need a place to go, get used to it.
Now, with the Sun in Virgo, it’s a perfect season to reflect on the traits of this sign. The values are respect, hard work, and above all service to others. It’s also a worrying sign that does everything it can to make things work for everyone.
It’s a Virgo time and a big Virgo problem. How do we “React” with Divine Mercy?
