She who hath an ear…
Someone took Pope Francis’ words from Thursday night and twisted their meaning thoroughly. It reminded me of the parable of the sower.
Whether or not we receive the Word of God depends on the condition of our hearts and NOT on the interpretation of the world, which seeks to steal our joy.
Today, one of our Catholic members, C* wrote: “Heard these words from our priest’s sermon today. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could live by these words? Someone would be paying for the sins against the family: ‘If anyone causes one of these little ones – those who believe in me – to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.’
“And from the Pope ‘Trust in God’s providence, in the face of any challenge.’ From your mouth to God’s ears, Pope Francis.”
