From our Motherhouse Chaplain, Fr. Lawrence Jagdfeld:

"...The pursuit of power, wealth, and status are all part of our desire to be great. Jesus asks us to let go of the power, to share our wealth and to eschew any sense of status. Rather we are to seek to be least even though it is completely contrary to our human nature...

... How are we called to be the least? Each of us must find our own way. Each of us must look upon the crucifix that hangs in our homes and look for ways to push back against the desire to flourish and expand in wealth and power and notoriety. Easy? Not at all. That is why Jesus asks us to take the 'narrow path' to heaven."

Fr. Lawrence Jagdfeld, O.F.M.

We can all fight human trafficking through heightened awareness of how and where it happens, which is often "hidden in plain sight." It is the first step in exposing, disrupting and deterring it... and ultimately freeing the enslaved. http://www.stopenslavement.org/assets/stoptraff1610.pdf
