This weekend’s readings were a non-stop blockbuster of well know biblical passages. Just in time for my wedding anniversary, there was Paul’s exhortation for married couples. What really struck me came from Joshua, “As for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord.” (Jos 24:15)
We’re coming to a very difficult journey in the American Church as the misdeeds of a few wolves in the clergy is coming to light. In these soon to be dark and tumultuous times, I know that the antidote to pride, lust, and deceit is to live as saints.
So that is what my family shall do. We shall remain faithful to Christ’s Church, we shall pray for and assist the victims, we shall advocate for justice and repentance, and we shall continue to serve the Lord with all of our minds and all of our hearts.
First Reading: Joshua 24: 1-2, 15-17, 18
