1 Samuel 28-31; John 13

John 13: 30 …And it was night.

As I was writing this, the previous day a respected, well-liked man of our parish – someone I would call a friend – was arrested in a sting as a child predator.  His wife like mine is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.  They have a daughter in college. As I sat in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in the early morning hours I felt the full weight of the night on my soul, the weight and weariness of a sick, wounded world.  Those of you that say you don’t need God, what fools you are!  We can be so proud of ourselves, we who are ultimately dust and ashes.  Jesus, you are the Good Shepherd, come look for us who stray and carry us back to the fold.  I know that you never stop loving us, give me the sense and soul to listen to your voice.

GOD’S ANSWER: As We never stop loving you, you never stop loving, even that neighbor who sins in grievous and scandalous way, for that is when that neighbor needs your love the most.
