"The other" is no longer a brother or sister to be loved, but simply someone who disturbs my life and my comfort… In this globalized world, we have fallen into globalized indifference.  We have become used to the suffering of others: it doesn’t affect me; it doesn’t concern me; it’s none of my business!  (Pope Francis)
