I recently watched the conclusion of Downton Abbey. I’m The end, the Family SERVED THE NEEDS of the ever faithful Butler. Jesus tells us the mark of a faithful Christian is SERVICE. WE OFTEN HAVE TO KNEEL DOWN TO GIVE IT...GET OFF OUR HIGH PERCH. WJETHER IT IS ME KNEELING TO FEED Buddy, or a nurse bending over a sick patience. Service gets us off our high horses. It makes us realize we are all in this human drama together. The strong lift up the weak realizing that weakness eventually overtakes us all. Recently my Guardian Alarm went off by mistake. And there they were at both doors, the faithful firemen. Praise God for all those who serve us. We should never take them for granted and so we pray: God bless so many who serve our needs. Lift up their flagging spirits, Especially those who serve in these still difficult Covid days. Amen

Wisdom and Money

The theme of today’s Readings

The Whistle blower this week revealed that FACEBOOK is aware that Instagram belittles teen girls as well as stirring up anger, resentment and all kinds of disinformation, but keeps it up because it sells advertising.

$$$ is the ultimate goal.

It is harder for Facebook than for a camel to thread through a needle.

this disinformation is lethal for democracy. Why?

Because if we distrust the workings of democracy, the very fabric of our nation is eroded.

in Scripture Satan is the “Father of Lies.”

This Father Of Lies is among us in the person of Donald Trump.

Remember  Nazi Germany, a country of great culture and education.

But Gobbels, The Trump Of his era believed if you tell a lie often enough, it sticks, and it did.

I highly recommend the book PERIL by Woodward and Costa.

God save our democracy!

Jesus: You must accept the Kingdom of God as children!

and yet we live in the shadows of the Tower of Babel, the Internet and misinformation.

How can we even be aware of good news?

we must once again open our eyes in wide eyed wonder as children do.

we must be resilient. Joyce Rupp writes about rootedness in her new book. We must summon up resiliency in the face of so much dysfunction that envelops us.

and so we pray: Deliver us from evil, and restore the joy of our youth.

long ago as an altar boy, I prayed: “I will go to the altar of God, the joy of my youth.”

so be it. So be it. Amen
