01-20-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 20, 2014
Jesus said, “no one pours new wine into old wineskins.  Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined.  Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.” 
Mk 2:18-22

This is why we have new generations.  This is why the new and old generations don’t always see eye to eye.  The older generations have seen a lot of wine.  They know a good wine from a bad one.  But the newer generations don’t have that experience.  Yet, unlike their wise elders, the younger ones are still very flexible.  They have more room to bend and flex when they’re hit with the bad.  The elders, on the other hand, are just trying to save the younger a lot of unnecessary aggravation and hurt.  Thus the world goes on . . .  And we keep on making the same old mistakes over and over again.

Sometimes the elders can learn from the youth as well.  Maybe some things are just not worth fretting over.  This is what Jesus was trying to get over to the Pharisees.  Let go a little and let God a lot!
