So, I am hearing that we are called to see our life on earth as passing away. Not only because we are sinners, but because we are supposed to be living the life of the resurrection. Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. What are we going to do to show that we are living the life of the resurrection today. We could go to Mass and experience heaven on earth, or even better we could go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and experience our turning away from sin before we receive Jesus in the Eucharist. In other words, we could choose to be truly conformed to His will today. Since today is Saturday, we have the chance to do these things no matter where we find ourselves in this country. We should not forget that there are people in the world today who will not be able to make it to their parish church because of the lack of religious freedom where they are from. Thanks be to God for giving us the freedom we enjoy and I long for the day when all the faith-filled people will be brought together in the New Jerusalem.
