for Sunday, June 22, 2008

Have you noticed that since 9-11, there are very few new stories that are merely called headlines? Everything now is news alert. We don't need their help. We have some real fears to consider the protection of our children from the negative aspects of our society. How should we, as Christians, deal with the stress? Today's Gospel tells us to trust in God, to be people of faith.

Maybe there are valid reasons for concern in our lives, but there is no valid reason for fear. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Yes, we have to take care of our families, particularly our children. We have to be careful about our health, yes; we do need to be alert to anyone who could threaten our security, but fear? No, we do not need to fear.

That's what Jesus is telling us today: trust God, don't be afraid, and know that whatever happens, you will be OK. He tells us to proclaim his Love to the world and hold fast to our Christianity, and not be concerned with the attacks of others. Good is always going to be attacked by evil. So the next time you turn on the news or pick up the paper and are accosted with: Breaking News, the only thing that we need to be concerned with is the One thing that makes every aspect of life not just bearable but beautiful, and that is the very Presence of the Love of God within each of us.

Do not be afraid; you, we, are worth more than many sparrows.
