From Mass This Weekend



'God did not make death,
nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
For he fashioned all things that they might have being;
and the creatures of the world are wholesome,
and there is not a destructive drug among them
nor any domain of the netherworld on earth,
for justice is undying.
For God formed man to be imperishable;
the image of his own nature he made him.
But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world,
and they who belong to his company experience it.'

 - Book of Wisdom

The above was our first reading at mass this weekend.  It is valuable and important to think about.  I (and probably many others) get so tied up in such small worries and trivial problems that we fail to live our fullest with those we love.  I want to stop being so focused on the trival and to instead focus on the meaningful.
