Cardinal Tagle of Philippines gives Inspiring Talk at #WMOF on Amoris Laetitia and Laudato Si - FULL Video

The full talk from Cardinal Tagle at the World Meeting of Families 2018 entitled ‘Choose Life: Pope Francis on the ‘throw-away’ culture’ on Aug. 22
Cardinal Luis Tagle of the Philippines said, "The throwaway attitude moved from the economy to culture. It has influenced mindsets, values, priorities and ways at looking at creation and at human beings.”  He combines an analysis of Pope Francis' Amoris Laetitia and Laudato Si. “Obsolescence has become culturally accepted by consumers,” he explained. “If the throwaway culture has penetrated our lives we may not even realize that even in front of your spouse you might be thinking: ‘When will she be obsolete?’” he said. “We should not choose between the environment and human beings, we need to take care of both by reviewing our mentality and culture.” He explained that the victims of a throwaway culture are “human lives, human persons, beginning with the family.” “Many people talk about Amoris Laetitia as an exhortation on the family. That is not wrong, but it’s incomplete,” Tagle elaborated, “it’s about love - love in the family.” “We should get out of the trap of individualism, which will lead us to throw away anything or anyone that is not connected with us,” the cardinal said. “We are connected persons, to God, to one another, to society, to the whole of creation.”
