02-19-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 19, 2014
St. James said, “everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger”  Jas 1:19-27

Just great advice!  Imagine a world like that!

Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village.  Putting spittle on his eyes he laid his hands on the man and asked,  “Do you see anything?”  Looking up the man replied, “I see people looking like trees and walking.” Then he laid hands on the man’s eyes a second time and he saw clearly;  Mk 8:22-26

And they always ask why it didn’t work the first time.  Maybe the man wasn’t quite ready yet.  Maybe he had spittle clouding up his vision.  Maybe he needed a kick-start before being able to finally see clearly.  Sometimes, beloved, we need a little kick-start too.  Maybe we didn’t quite hear as quickly as we should have.  Maybe we spoke too quickly.  Maybe we got angry when it really wasn’t justified – we didn’t see the whole picture clearly yet.

It all gets down to just having a little patience and understanding of the circumstances of others, besides our own.  Maybe it’s time to wipe off the spittle and start seeing a little clearer!

Can’t you just hear that guy rushing home and singing:
I can see clearly now the rain is gone . . .
