Thinking back over the twenty-five years I taught at our parish school, I recall 270 graduates, and most of them benefitted from the training that we and their parents showered on them. I am saddened by the way twenty or thirty of them turned out. They gave in to addictions, and they deserted the little families God gave them.
The sad thing about them is that with driving their big cars, they seem to be getting away with self-centered living, In today's Gospel Jesus says that God cannot be cheated. He will see to it that their sins will catch up with them.
