Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, DD of Manila, talks about « The Eucharist and the Dialogue with Cultures » at the 51st IEC in Cebu City, January 28, 2016.

Addressing delegates to the International Eucharistic Congress in Cebu City, Philippines, on Jan. 28, 2016, Cardinal Tagle of Manila, who serves as president of Caritas Internationalis, noted that « a culture of achievement » drives people « to work hard for self-advancement and for the good of their families. »
« The reality, however, is that human achievement is often fueled by materialism, the accumulation, the consumption of goods, even when they are not needed, » said Cardinal Tagle.
He described as « a scandal » the reality that poor people live in the midst of trash discarded by others.
« In a culture of achievement for profit, a good life, and success, we lose the sense of having been graced, having been gifted, having been blessed, » said Cardinal Tagle.
