02-19-20 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 19, 2020
Know this, my dear brothers and sisters: everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for anger does not accomplish the righteousness of God. . . .  If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, his religion is vain. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world.  Jas_1:19-27

Don’t you just love this letter of St. James, beloved!  He is our sandpaper, our wake-up call, our purifying crucible.  Yes! It’s not easy keeping oneself “unstained by the world,” especially when that ‘world’ constantly bombards us with everything so contrary to God’s love and mercy and forgiveness and complementarity.  We really CAN get along with one another, even in our differences.  We really CAN help those who are needy, rather than shunning them.  We really CAN, even find agreement where it seems impossible.  For nothing is impossible with God.  All we need do is trust in Him, one person at a time!
