When was the last time you felt uncomfortable standing up for Christian values and teachings? The glitz, the glamour, the wealth, and the power of the social elites runs rampant. When was the last time you embraced the poor in a tangible and concrete manner? Our secular society is consumed with moral degradation and death. When was the last time you you did something to specifically build a culture of life?
Fr. Daniel Berrigan said, "If you want to follow Jesus you better look good on wood." If you haven't felt the cost of discipleship lately I encourage you to spend some time in prayer and reflection. Allow the Holy Spirit to move within you during these days between the Ascension and Pentecost. Step out in faith. Be not afraid!
