Mass Thoughts


Fortunately, I was far more successful this week in paying attention at Mass.   The one part of the readings today that especially hit a chord with me was:

Share your bread with the hungry,
shelter the oppressed and the homeless;
clothe the naked when you see them,
and do not turn your back on your own.


I keep finding, that while I *know* the ideas expressed above, that I hate that I so often recognize that I am so far from where I could and should be in regards to the above.   I could devote more time to service.  I could work harder to help others.  The take home message I had from Mass today is that I need to try harder.  I need to strive to be the better person I should be.

If only all Christians took their duties as seriously as you do, the world would be in much better shape.
