“Just the Moment”

Acts 20:17-27; Jn. 17:1-11

I saw “The Soloist” tonight.  Genius, with mental illness.  No psychrity, no meds can fix him, rather you walk with him in the moment.  We are always trying to fix people, rather than living with them in the moment.  Last night “John” 25 was all over the place. He too has schizophrenia.  No meds, nothing has fixed him, but he is a unique individual, worthy to be loved, and enjoyed.  So the movie was a reminder to me that ultimately that is all we  have is the  moment, and to try to fix people is not our job, it is to live with them, to love them, to walk with them, to let them make their choices.  Served meal. Movie, outreach. Did not take part in Proposition 8 activities, too busy taking care of the least of these. Bed at 1: 00 a.m. I will be on retreat until Sunday, so no posts. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
