New Directions

Sollemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist

Lk. 1:5;7-66, 80


John the Baptist pointed us to the reign of God and to Jesus–a new way of living.  We need to move to a new way of living–of personal involvement in the poverty, the pain of our local communities, and call our leaders to do the same. As Will Tuttle puts it:


Are we ready for a spiritual revolution?

If we refuse, the strife, stress, and destruction will almost certainly intensify due to our ascending numbers and exploitive technology.

When is a caterpillar ready to transform? The most obvious sign is the passing of its voracious appetite because an inner urge turns its attention to new directions.
