A Lesson

The correct answers are always available if you seek them

This morning at Mass, the second reading was a short passage from St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans (Rom 12:1-2).

These two verses have also been recited weekly by a group of men that have been meeting  for over thirteen years, working together to be better husbands, fathers and friends.

We hold each other accountable, yet we appreciate and understand how easy it is to forget/ignore the message while living in today’s secular/sexual world.

We feel we owe it to our families to give it our best shot.

The passage:

I urge you brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual (act of)  worship. Do not conform yourself to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.

Think on these things. Think also of  the lives, marriages and families that have been destroyed by failing to follow this simple passage.

Surely you know more than one.

    The Pandemic of our age is contained in forgetting that advice. I freely admit that I fell foul. But I also freely state that I learned my lesson well. Whether that exonerates me is in the mind of the beholder. You give sage advice. I hope many will cleave it to their hearts and heed it well.
