Our lives are the envy of the rest of the world.

Friday, 10/6/17

What are we to make of what Jesus said to Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum? . How does it apply to us when Jesus said, "If the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have long ago repented."

The meaning for us might be that if the miserable societies around this world had received our rich upbringing they would have made more of their lives than we make of ours.

We have benefitted from so many good things. For one, we grew up in families that ate together with all of us looking ot for each other. It was so much better than the lives of street urchins.

We had parents and teachers who taught us the value of disciplined lives that gave us the ability to carry out the good plans we lay for ourselves.

We have the benefits of living in such a well ordered country that we are the envy of the rest of the world


If we do not make the best of our advantages, if we don't try repaying God for all he has given us we are useless ungrateful people.

Well said Father. We should be ashamed.
