Friday of the Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time

2 JN 4-9, LK 17:26-37

Writing to a "Chosen Lady" St. John rejoices greatly that "some" of her children are walking in the truth. Perhaps some of her children are not.

St. John's letter fits today's society very well. It's not too uncommon to hear people say, "I'm spiritual but not religious." It's akin to someone saying, "I'm American but not patriotic."

St. John has this statement. Anyone who is so "progressive" as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God.

More importantly, Catholic, non-Mass goers, especially on Sunday, should heed the words of our Lord, "Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you shall not have life in you."

Father Martin Stillmock, C.Ss.R.
