Readings of the day:
We are answerable to God for all the actions we freely perform. – St. Jose Maria escriva
For our every actions, we either move a step towards God or we move way from him. Moving away from him, sin takes a better part of us. it seems many are choosing the ‘moving away part’ with the way our society is becoming more secularized. It seems the days we are in, the molten calf people worship as of the days of old are: sex, wealth and power; leaving no space for true worship of God. This should never be, this shouldn’t be the case.in the words of St. John Chrysostom “God loves us more than a father, mother, friend, or any else could love, and even more than we are able to love ourselves.” Why pay him back with such love by choosing to walk in our stiff-necked path?
we shouldn’t forget so soon that the air that pass through our lungs can be exterminated within a second. of what use would our life be then, if not now to render due worship to God. of what use would the money and pleasures be?
May we then approach the heart of Jesus, who was sent by the father to lead us to himself to help us have a heart solely for God alone– to have God, all other things fall into proper place.
Peace and Love of Christ!
