Willa wrote this as a comment on one of the blogs here. I am taking this occassion to respond to her and perhaps draw somebody else into the conversation:
I pray that you don’t loose the zeal to do whatever good you can. At least there are people like you … we may not change the world in one day but we still can change some things today in our small way…
The way things are right now — with corporations taking over — the individual can only do something small. It is true that we can exert some more effort to really change something: attitudes, ways of thinking, customs… We can always do that. But remember that even John Paul II admits that effective changes are carried out not by people who are alone but by people who are with others. Community is the key. But communities now seem to be places where individuals become comfortable and uncommitted.
What the Jesuits wrote as some guidelines can be of help.
What did they say? Is there a document somewhere in the web that I can read?
Really most of us are getting lost and we make the alibi that we are just human…
Just human? Yeah, it is a product of our time’s lack of faith. We are not “just human.” Our baptism has transformed us into Spirit-powered Word-enfleshed children of God. Sanctifying grace has changed us into “gods” The thing however is that we’re eagles who think we’re just chicken. So instead of flying we just go about pecking at scraps.
may you have the blessings and graces you need always in your ministry…keep that passion for God’s Kingdom!!!
Thank you, Willa. Blessings I need a lot of, that’s for sure.
