Love One Another

June 7, 2015 Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ “Love One Another” Mark 14:12-26

Thomas Merton at the bloody height of the Vietnam War was asked by a radical peace activist, “what should we do”? He responded, “Go home, read the scriptures, celebrate the Eucharist (breaking of the bread), and you’ll figure it out.  The message of scriptures and the breaking of the bread are the same: LOVE ONE ANOTHER.”

in the midst of war, outrageous rent prices, evictions, poverty, homelessness, divisiveness, homophobia, trans phobia, and pain that is the only advice I give to people now. For when we hear the words of scripture, break bread together we love one another, and we meet the needs of each other. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
