Love and Justice

While we busy ourselves striving
for power and control,
the Gospel proclaims
a different approach:
live a life of utter
dependence on and receptivity to God.
Accepting that spiritual reality
makes spiritual growth and fulfillment possible.
The Gospel invites us to live with contradiction –
when one has nothing,
one has everything.

If the Gospel is not about love and justice,
it has been reduced to mere sentimentality.
Jesus denounced power that leads to injustice and poverty;
He asked us to share what we have with others.
Christianity does not turn away from
the cross and suffering;
it enters it.
Of course, we don’t like hearing that…
