My Comfort Zone

The consumer society we live in is nothing new. Since the Fall, humans have been consuming one another without pause. Sin gives us a license to devour each other. Sin diminishes our capacity to love. Our “stuff” walls us off from others, preventing us from becoming sister and brother to all of creation, including the poor souls living on the margins of society. A heart beating with compassion is the primary fruit of an encounter with the Cross.

From Christ’s point of view, “you” comes before “me.” The danger of our thirst for individualism is that it weakens our awareness of the needs of others. The gift of faith is often rejected by Christians who become too accustomed to their comfort, too comfortable in their certainty about God.
