01-21-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 21, 2019
(St. Agnes, Virgin and Martyr)
Jesus said, No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak.  If he does, its fullness pulls away, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse.  Mk_2:18-22

And so, Israel, with a tear in its fabric, could not be corrected with the simple, new patch of change.  They needed one of their own kind, like Jesus, to point a new way to salvation.  And yet Jesus was the new patch for the non-Jewish, Gentiles.  The faith that they gained was not the faith of old-time Israel.  Their coat was new and it was better.

In today’s world we might say just the opposite.  The new culture may be faster, it may be easier, it may be more sleek than the ways of their grandparents.  But unfortunately, it’s NOT better!  And there is no way to patch a tattooed, ear-ringed, trash-mouthed, confused-sexed, death loving zombie with respect, love, life and morals.  But we can pray for them, beloved.  And we can love them anyway, even though we are clearly not in agreement with the color of their coats!  We love them, because we know, that deep down inside, in the end, they’re equally God’s beloved, imperfect children, just as we are!  And praise be to God for all of us!
