Action not excuses!

home altar 2Every year when I hear today’s Gospel, I say “why didn’t someone help him?” And then I think about the many occasions where a homeless person asked me for help, an elderly person was in need, a family member called me or my Church could have used my Time and Talents. Then I thought – what was present back then is still our crutch today – greed, not having enough time, selfishness, a focus on one’s own needs, excuses… but what can change is how we approach these same situations. If we become good and faithful Stewards of what God has provided us with – we can make a difference and eliminate the passions that have a negative impact. For we, too, can be made whole!
