Amare super odisse
The world is becoming a very hateful place. Sectarian divide is getting wider and wider. Instead of living as children of the living God, too many of the "religious" are simply digging trenches and preparing for war.
To what end does this serve? How is a militaristic devotion to your interpretation on dead texts building his kingdom on Earth?
The new prophets of dead texts are just as dead as the people who wrote them. The only difference is that they're dead inside. They're stuck in purgatory, stasis, no ability to be dynamic in faith or to radiate his love to others.
Like a bird trapped in an oil spill yet in denial of those very conditions.
What do we do, those of us who are Lambs of the Living God!
We pray, we work and we counter the work of hate with his weapon of pure love and grace.
Love one another and not in just a superficial way. Not in such a way that makes you feel good in the moment. Love in the way he loves, with everything in you.
Be gracious, fight hate with compassion. The Lord will find them, he always does.
