THE NOW WORD ON MASS READINGS
for Friday, January 16th, 2015
Liturgical texts here
THERE is so much happening in our world, so quickly, that it can be overwhelming. There is so much suffering, adversity, and busyness in our lives that it can be discouraging. There is so much dysfunction, societal breakdown, and division that it can be numbing. In fact, the world’s rapid descent into darkness in these times has left many fearful, despairing, paranoid… paralyzed.
But the answer to all this, brothers and sisters, is to simply be faithful.
