What we should fear...
This is a Chilean lamb! I guess I like it because it is a black sheep and apart from the flock. I know that Jesus is wanting to carry it home with tenderness.
More from the Pope's Joyous Gospel:
If something should rightly disturb us and trouble our consciences, it is the fact that so many of our brothers and sisters are living without the strength, light and consolation born of friendship with Jesus Christ, without a community of faith to support them, without meaning and a goal in life. More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and Jesus does not tire of saying to us: "Give them something to eat" (Mk 6:37).
I am letting you do your own reflection - in the Society of the Sacred Heart, we are in a process of examining the way we want to restructure our Province and I guess the above has something to say to us about going out to give God's love, opening ourselves and our communities to others and not holding on to past structures if we need to organize ourselves differently.
