What would Amos have made of Blackpool on a Saturday night? The travel sections of the Sunday press are full of enticement to go to exotic places.

The ‘good life’ no longer means being self-sufficient on a small holding but luxury living. That is the social ideal. We imaginr ourslves to be standing on the sidelines, not implicated.  Did BBC’s Panorama programme on Monday not give you food for thought?  Where do you buy your clothes? It would be doubtful if they were made in England unless you are prepared to pay for Harris Tweed made up by a  London taylor. To buy in from Bangladesh is standard for the clothing industry today and there poor people are being exploited, locked up in factories in Dickensian conditions, working 19 hour shifts for a pittance.

You walk into a supermarket and see banks of cut flowers. It is likely that they come from Africa where small farmers have been moved off their land so that multinationals may grow flowers for export - and, naturally, for profit.  On a world scale we are the rich and we are caught up in a system that oppresses the poor.

What can we do?  We can support campaigns to encourage clothing retailers not to take at face value the bland assurances of foreign manufacturers about standards to be oberved in their work-places.

You have received a Cafod envelope this morning. We use it at this time of year to express our harvest thanksgiving -  our thanksgiving that for us the earth has provided food in abundance.  Cafod’s strategic priority is to help small farmers first to become more efficient and then to form cooperatives to market what they produce. Please put your offering in the envelope and place it in the Offertory next Sunday.
