GOOD INTENTIONS ARE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR WISDOM — PART 1

Protesting What They Should Have Applauded The funniest things are most revealing. Therefore, even CNN could not avoid publishing this video, Watch Democrats react to Trump's address. They offered this observation: It wasn't hard to tell how Democrats felt about Donald Trump's State of the Union address. Here is an alternative from MRCTV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNWqqKcHk1U Have... Continue Reading →

Could You Influence Anything? Take A Step Back and Look.

Here is a post with an interesting question. It is one a historian would ask. “Ask yourself, can one person have the influence of a Paul, Augustine, Jefferson, MLK, or John Paul II?”

Do you want to know how small and insignificant we are? On a clear night, find a spot as far as you can from city lights. Then spread out a blanket, lay on your back, and gaze up into the sky. Think about what you a seeing. Endless numbers of stars, a universe that appears to go on and on without end.

What influence did Paul, Augustine, Jefferson, MLK, or John Paul II have? Earth is only a small little ball of mud, one of the many small objects that circle around a minor yellow star. If an asteroid crashed into us, would anyone care? We live in the midst of a nearly empty void that dwarfs even the most gigantic stars. We worry about influencing this tiny little world, but how is that we exist at all?

Fortunately, Jesus told us what we should fear. There is our Creator, God. The Bible says God cares, that each of us matters.

Luke 12:4-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Jesus Teaches the Fear of God

4 “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!

6 “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

God has a plan for each of us. Is it to influence this world? Maybe not.

If all we do is tell our neighbors about the Gospel, we have glorified our Creator. If we love our Maker above all else, have we not done — will we not do — what He asks. When we love God and strive to obey Him, what else matters?

Read Philip’s post. Then remember what he says. We must rely upon our faith in God and His grace.

Communio

I think it’s easy to write about Church History, doctrine, canon laws, etc.

It’s easy to talk about how Catholics, or any simply Christian, should conduct themselves by the edicts of their professed Church. I look up a source, type it up, cite it, and give it to you.

It’s even easy to dust off one’s metaphorical or literal soapbox, step up, look at the empty and strange faces in the crowd and preach what we think is the message of the Gospel.

So what is difficult? I find it’s difficult to understand God, and his message, because I’m human. The divine is simply something when I meditate on is something that feels so distant, although at times it rushes through my soul–and evaporates so to speak. God comes to us through His grace. He invites us into a relationship with Him, after millenniums of we humans rejecting His grace…
