TThis weekend we hear the recital of the commandments, but as Christians if we are sincere about our love for the Lord, then they are just the starting point. We are called to much more.
We have all heard again about the mass shootings, the latest being the one in Oregon, and so we say I don’t murder. But is that all? What have we done to enhance the lives of others? I believe that all of us have to share the guilt concerning abortion, since we rather vote for politicians who support the anti-life stance that is so prevalent in our society. There is more to that commandment then just not killing. What have any of us done to support life? And that only covers one commandment, what about the others?
The culture of death will succeed on only one condition and that is as once was said: “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing.” Are we sitting silently in our pews, deaf to what the Lord is asking us in these readings this weekend? Take the plunge and start a deeper walk with the Lord.
How by joining any of our spiritual groups, this weekend the Neocatechumenal community is inviting us to join them for their teaching. My brothers and sisters, in the society that we live, which is individualistic, hedonistic and minimalistic, are we doing all that we can to pass the faith on to our children? I am afraid not, because the society in which they will be adults, will be so against what we as Christians are called to believe. Come and join them for the teachings, and see!!!!
I love you!
