Techno-poverty begins at Home

The "poverty" of  people and families not connecting is a scene that frequently plays out in restaurants and home dining rooms everywhere. The family scenario goes something like this … Sadly, a mom or dad is found staring at the walls - lost in loneliness while a spouse speaks on a cell phone, a daughter may feverishly type sending text messages and a son may fervently play games on his cell phone -  all pretending to be together, but not really.

The noise has become so great in our lives, hasn’t it? We visit but we don’t interact. We talk but we don’t have conversations. We are with each other but we don’t have relationships. Mother Teresa once said in this regard, long before the techno – poverty invasion of our homes and relationships … “Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.” Blessed Mother Teresa
