07-01-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 1, 2015
Jesus seemed to travel back and forth over the Sea of Galilee often.  In one recollection, the Gospel writer tells us how, after disembarking from a crossing, Jesus encountered two demon possessed men who were very dangerous to those who lived in the area.  So Jesus freed the men from their possession, made the area safe again for travel and the demons were destroyed in the process (along with a herd of pigs).  But rather than look at the positive side of the event, the townspeople focused on their loss. Thereupon the whole town came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him they begged him to leave their district.  Mt_8:28-34

To them, the pigs were more important than the lives of the two possessed men.  And more important than the safety of travelers in the area.  For them it was easier to avoid the possessed men than to help them.  What is it in our lives, brothers and sisters, that we allow – that shouldn’t be allowed.  What is it that we are so comfortable with, that would cause us to prefer to eliminate our Savior instead of our vices.  Think about it.  Jesus is here to help us, not hurt us.  We should always welcome Him above all else, and He will see us through whatever it is that chains us!
