Roc Homily – Twenty-First Sunday Ordinary Time 2016
How might we hear this gospel as a catalyst to increase the amount of change going on in our lives so as to be conformed to Christ?
And who really likes change? You? I don’t much.
Good intentions don’t help us, really. “I need to… I should… I ought to…” pretty much doesn’t work all that well. Instead: What is my next better step? What’s the next right thing for me to do? And not be tied to the results.
Adult spirituality has to take into account these opposite movements: “You call me to be like you, Lord.” and “Ain’t no way I’m changing!”
The younger years of “Ain’t No Way” … always had the second thought of ” Maybe when I’m 70″!
Now, at 71, … “You gotta be kidding, Lord … not again”!
I’m with you on that, Mary. “When will this end…?” In purgatory, I guess… then heaven!
