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.
