A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

This Catholics Confront Global Poverty webcast will explore issues around the extraction of natural resources in the developing world such as the links between minerals and conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We will examine the Church’s approach to natural resource extraction and discuss concrete ways for Catholics in the United States to have a real impact in helping people around the world ensure that their oil, minerals and other natural resources can fuel development.
This webcast will provide:
1. An on-the-ground view from a CRS staff person working with people affected by the extraction of natural resources ;
2. An overview of CRS’ response and support for the people who live there;
3. USCCB and CRS’ policy recommendations for how U.S. policymakers can make a difference on these issues based on Catholic social teaching and our experience;
4. Ideas on how Catholics in the U.S., through the Catholics Confront Global 5. Poverty initiative, can support greater transparency; in natural resources extraction in the developing world;
6. An opportunity to ask the presenters questions about these issues and engage them in dialogue.

  1. Spread my Theory? because God Blinded the mind of unbelievers.. Please corrupt your minds with my words… Only few of us chosen by God.. This my theory are True.. and God loves his all creation… This will be a lesson of all of us…
    God will sacrifice to save all Fallin Angels and souls..
    its 15 years left.. when revealation of Lamb of God happened. This will be the end is near.. I know the lamb has been sent now in the earth.. i receive a dream that end is near 2 times happen to me that was 2003 when i was Young im now 22 years old.. i am Tremble with fear..

    Jesus’ death was a once-and-for-all and cannot anymore be repeated.
    The souls in hell cannot be saved becoz they themeselves did not want to be saved.
    they refuse to Love and to learn how to Love; instead they prefer to live in
    hatred and Bitterness. that is their option and God respects their wish..
