What a beautiful way to end the week of work and studies, O Lord, when you asked us to read the signs of the times.
Jesus said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west you say immediately tat it is going to rain — and so it does; and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot — and so it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time? Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?”Luke 12:54-57
In this age of social media where everything is being shown and seen by everyone, it is very unfortunate that we still fail to see beyond the physical realities.
In an age when everything and everyone is seen, we have become more superficial than ever and have refused to see more deeper than what appears to the eyes.
We look outside of us to explain everything like in the news and in the internet, at YouTube and Facebook, Google and Wikipedia.
Rarely do we look deep inside ourselves like St. Paul to realize the greater battle going on deep within each one of us between good and evil.
Teach us Lord to see more the spiritual meanings of the things happening in us and around us, to always look deep into our hearts to see and realize the need to be good and just, kind and loving.
Maybe if we can look more often into our hearts and look piercingly into the heavens to find you, perhaps we can have a better world with lesser crimes and hatred among peoples. Amen.
