I went to find support for my sense that our current Pope Francis was missing his own cue for Jubilee. He has not made any statements regarding the economic situation in Greece. My call was to be: “What is Jubilee if not to stand up for debt forgiveness for Greece and all other debtors on this Earth today? The Pope named 2015 a year of Jubilee, where is he!?” Jubilee is debt forgiveness. My bad. A little research on what a Jubilee means is a bit more complex than I thought. It turns out the Pope’s call for attention on our Earth’s climate is indeed a Jubilee root call. Jubilee at its’ root is about human stewardship of our planet. http://www.christusrex.org/www1/ofm/jub/JUBmean1.html
That said, my soul is crying out about the monetary balance of power on Earth today. Money and the environment are intimately connected and today Greece has announced that it is going to print its’ own money, its’ own currency, as an answer to the untenable terms the Euro based bank’s have demanded for repayment. This kind of announcement in the past has triggered war. The Pope might just want to expand his Jubilee call after all.
The Pope could serve to secure freedom for all on our planet for generations to come if he were to make a call for the World’s Banks to take a haircut on derivatives and sovereign nation’s debt . The Pope could influence banks to clean up for the Jubilee so to speak. I certainly hope he intends to stand with Greece on their right to sovereignty. I hope all the people on this planet are ready to stand with Greece’s right to print their own money.
Choosing Honor was published in 2008. Everything I say in this book about money has become even more important today. How our world progresses is going to be up to us, the people. Ending war as an answer and developing clean sustainable resource use is in our hands. How we wield our money is going to dictate who rules. The new paperback edition of Choosing Honor has been published in support of the Pope’s naming 2015 a Jubilee year. The new format makes the fact heavy text easier to read and absorb. Knowing what you need to know to stand for what is right in the coming world conflicts has never been more vital. Find Choosing Honor on Amazon.
