1 John 2:22-28
A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:
How the Holy Spirit challenges
us to trust! The New Year is here, and we
must squarely face the work that lies ahead of us. The lines are fudged
between Father, Son, and Spirit--in Jesus we see God. That means--if we
are to obey God, we must obey the Son. We must roll up our sleeves and
put in practice those sure and abundant directions for bringing Peace.
"If you want peace, you must work for justice"! All over again, we must
engage in the battle for healthcare for the poor, help for our Catholic
schools, help for the marginalized in our society. Jesus will never rest
until we have taken up His causes. Nor will salvation be readily handed
us until we take seriously the commands of Jesus. We have our work cut
out for us in 2003!
- Msgr. Paul Whitmore
