10-07-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 7, 2018
(27th Sunday, Ordinary Time, B)
So the LORD God cast a deep sleep on the man, and while he was asleep, he took out one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.  The LORD God then built up into a woman the rib that he had taken from the man.  When he brought her to the man, the man said: “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called ‘woman, ‘ for out of ‘her man’ this one has been taken.”  Gn_2:18-24

The nurses always joked about this being the first orthopedic surgery!  Of course, the anesthesiologists and the geneticists would have their say too.  And you know, beloved, we couldn’t have had a better teacher!  And yet, it wasn’t about medicine, nor technology.  The whole point was the ONENESS of them both.  It didn’t make either better, or first, or more full than the other.  It made them complementary.  It made them: “MADE for each other.”  It made them both greater together than they could ever be apart!

When we can get off the “Who’s the greatest” kick in our culture, in our society, brothers and sisters, maybe then we’ll begin to see the beauty in our diversity and the complementary nature of being man and woman!  And after realizing that, then, we may more clearly understand the awesome miracle and creative wonder of childbearing, and the dignity of ALL life!

It’s WHY we were created!  It’s who we are!  All to the Glory of God, in thanksgiving to Jesus for reminding us!  Any other contorted revision of this Truth, is sadly a testimony to our own depravity. For we all and always have the God-given, free will to believe or not.

Jesus taught us to Love God and to love one another!
And not for “MY” sake, but for Theirs!
This IS our calling!
