11-17-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

November 17, 2018
(St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Religious)
St. John wrote, Beloved, you are faithful in all you do for the brothers and sisters, especially for strangers;  3_Jn_5-8

When I was a kid, we were always told to be cautious around strangers.  The stranger wasn’t the enemy, but surely could be, especially if he or she was giving out candy.

In the world of our kids, then, they were told to absolutely never trust strangers, because they are the enemy.  Don’t say hi to them.  Don’t even look at them.  We were turning into a pretty cold and nasty world ourselves.

Today, guess we just have to be very careful BEING strangers.  We are not to look at other people, especially not children, lest they sue us or even worse, kill us for looking at them.

Just what have we done!  How are we ever supposed to share the love and the kindness of Jesus if we are forced to be so isolationist.  Sounds just like something the evil one would contrive!  Now we have to lock up our schools with the kids inside so that madmen can’t enter.  We have to be ultra-careful when returning to our parked cars that someone doesn’t kidnap us or knock us out to steal our vehicle.  And we just cannot trust anyone from the politicians to the media to the advertising world.

How will we ever get over this, beloved???
