January 27,  St. Angela Merici  Mark 3:22-40Lk. 10:38-42

 

The one friendship that has sustained me through the years is that of Jesus. Clearly, and without a doubt I would be either dead or crazy by now, but Jesus has walked with me, loved me, and cared for me.  We seem to be living in a society where people are always in a hurry or they want to “fix” the problem, but I believe that we need to take time give our personal attention to other people. A new 19 year old stopped me and we talked for an hour, he had been in a group home, and was living with an aunt, and his guardedness went down and he was just a normal 19 year old; I am always talking to people on the street–I simply listen–and it is in the listening that people can find comfort and sometimes figure out things.

 And we need to become friends with nature- there was an article that climate change is really going to effect the far east, and it is effecting everyone, and yet we ignore it–only when we befriend nature rather then conquer can any hope be found for the future. Living for the future is a waste of time.  St. Angela Merici said:  “Do now what  you wish you had done when your moment comes to die.”  When I am talking to people I think the words of the words of Jesus on the cross, “This day you will be with me in Paradise,” for Paradise is now, in the moment, in the present. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
