Imprint of divine wisdom

“In our time, certain cultural orientations no longer recognize the imprint of divine wisdom in created things, not even in the person. Human nature is thus reduced to mere matter, pliable to any design.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: The Catholic Church believes that “every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person” (U.S. Catholic Catechism for Adults, p. 423). Look at the institutions you interact with regularly, like a local parish, government, hospital, school, or service organization. Where do you see examples of efforts to enhance human dignity as God created us? How might (or do) you play a role in addressing practices or policies that threaten the life and dignity of the human person?
