By Erwin Kräutler,Josef Bruckmoser

Es liegt mittlerweile auf der Hand: Die Welt hat sich verändert, alte Ordnungen und Sicherheiten wanken und Europa muss sich neu orientieren. Aber wohin? Amazonasbischof Erwin Kräutler benennt sieben Kategorien für ein Leben, das vor dem eigenen Gewissen und vor der Mitwelt bestehen kann:
1.Liebe die Menschen
2.Schau bei den Armen nicht weg
3.Achte die Schöpfung
4.Suche den Frieden
5.Führe auf Augenhöhe
6.Hab Mut zu Veränderungen
7.Es gibt nur eine Welt - nimm deine Verantwortung wahr

In seinem Plädoyer stützt sich Erwin Kräutler auf die Bibel, auf seine 50-jährige Erfahrung als Seelsorger und Bischof in Amazonien und auf Papst Franziskus. Es überrascht nicht, dass der Bischof vom Xingu und der Papst aus Buenos Aires in vielen Akzentsetzungen übereinstimmen. Umso mehr aber überzeugt, wie punktgenau die beiden Kirchenmänner aus dem Süden die Herausforderungen benennen, vor denen die Europäer und mit ihnen die europäischen Christen stehen.
