Christianity is about witnessing, and the whole idea of witnessing is to “go and do likewise.” The opposite to love is not hatred, but indifference. God is love, so if I am indifferent, then I must seriously ask myself where God is in my life? It is a basic question that we must ask, and only we can answer it! Did I mention that this was one of Jesus greatest challenges, to take care of the poor and to feed the hungry? This is what we signed up for. We do have to become more involved.

Fr.  Vincent Freeh, MSC, who recently celebrated his 61st Anniversary of Ordination, has a passion for restoring the family as an essential cultural value.  In this five-part video series, he teaches us about the importance of prayer.  “We need prayer that we might be free from ourselves and not only from ourselves but so that we can turn to others with God’s truth and love.” 

In the heart of God, the most important thing in the entire universe is human relationships. God knows and loves us and wants us to know and love Him. God also wants us to know and love one another. Jesus spelled this out when He spoke of the two most important commandments. The first, He said, was to love God with all our hearts and the second was to love our neighbor as ourselves. The most important thing to God is human relationships, and deep on the inside, where our true values lie, that is also the most important thing to us.

Our reflection today may be one of the most difficult to face, and we may not want to dwell on the subject at all, but it is a reality we cannot deny. Good and evil are at war within us.

Listen to Fr. Quy Tran, MSC talking about how he found his call to the priesthood and his discernment to become an MSC Priest.

To discover how much we have grown, all we have to do is look at what kind of sowers we have become. Today, we are the sowers, we are the ones called to “go out to sow,” to live as our faith calls us to leave, to share our faith with those whom God puts in our path and to share God’s love: “Go out into the whole world and tell the good news…

Life is meant to be shared, not only with people but also with God. This, I think, is what prayer is. It is not begging God to give us things, no matter how much they might benefit us. It is giving ourselves to God and allowing God to give Himself to us.

We are often told that we live in an uncaring world. It is hard to argue with that! For some people, life is like a daily crucifixion. They never get off the cross. The only thing they ever experience is abuse and rejection. Unless we make kindness a way of life, we may never experience how our acts of kindness could, and very often, do make a huge difference in someone’s life, and perhaps it may be the only sign that there is someone who loves them.
