Saturday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time
2 Sm 1:1-4, 11-12, 19, 23-27/Mk 3:20-21
young people fell in love, but the parents of the girl were not at all enthused
about their relationship. “Stay away from my daughter,” the father of the girl
warned the boy, “or you will pay dearly for your foolishness!” Both the girl
and the boy lamented their miserable state of being kept apart. Finally, the
boy decided he would stand on the street outside the girl’s home and throw
pebbles at the window of the girl’s room. She then realized he was outside. He could
not make noise, so he exaggerated the words “I-love-you” silently on his lips.
Another neighbor saw him but could not see to whom he was talking. She watched his exaggerated gestures for a
while, and then concluded, “Poor boy. He must not be well.”
insanity and love both seem the same. What we do out of love makes sense only
to one who loves.
