Agriculture is a major industry in the United States, with California accounting for over 12% of the . agriculture cash receipts.  Over half of agricultural workers in California, contributing to the state's agriculture economy and providing the nation with over half of all fruits and vegetables, are undocumented.

Many undocumented communities suffer from food insecurity due to low wages, forcing families to purchase economically viable unhealthy food.

My assumption is that the priest as my confessor was trying to tell me if we don’t believe that the church will overcome these evils then we don’t believe the words of our Lord found in that particular passage and if we don’t believe our Lord’s words in scripture we really don’t have the fullness of faith. I am praying for the pope and the church. However, I am a person that needs to be proactive and sometimes prayer is not enough for me and this is where I can get myself in trouble . The priest ( our parish pastor) was generous in saying I was a good catholic because of my concern and that I should never be afraid of upholding the truth. Let us pray and let us not fear the enemy but be as courageous as ever in speaking the truth especially with respect to the very grave evils that some are trying to “normalize”. Satan is alway at work and this is just a test. If the laity collectively would display the courage needed to support this important doctrine it would send a message to pastors and bishops. Perhaps then it would gain even a small mention in a homily….that in my opinion would be a good start. Lets see what happens given the what has played out in this synod. Pax CHristi.
