Hey Patty,

Good to see you post again.

I like what you said about Jesus hanging out with the "sinners." In a way Jesus was about being with the poor and oppressed.. You know about Maryknoll? They are some of the people I most respect in Catholicism. 

I think that in a way people want to ignore this aspect of what Jesus said. To truly love and care for those on the "edge" is something really special that Jesus did. Those that people have forgotten are not forgotten by God.

Hello Hayfa!  Good to hear from you too.  I am quite familiar with the Maryknoll....they are fantastic!  And yes, Jesus was the one who taught us to love everyone....even those who many of us would shun as being "unworthy" of our attention or respect.  Very sad.  When I am tempted to say something, or do something unkind, the words of Jesus come back to me where he said, "whatever you do to the least of these, you have done it also to me."  Makes you think before you speak, doesn't it?

God's Peace,

Patty

I think it is the one of the most profound aspect of the message of Jesus..  It impacted by life tremendously as this was the aspect that were emphasized as we were raised.

I think that is one of the saddest aspect to the world we live in.. that we have become so focused on acculmulating matieral goods that we have lost the spiritual. All that junk you cannot take with you.. you'd think we'd realize that from the Egyptians who tried to take all that gold and items with them.. and they were still here 1000 years later.

Yes, Hayfa, I totally agree with you.  I remember the Bible verse which goes, "what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul."

God's Peace,

Patty
