Brothers and Sisters,

Our weekend readings make even more difficult demands on us regarding our behavior as Christians. We live in a culture where there is so much rhetoric about protecting oneself and one’s property, about guns and gated communities. How do we reconcile this with Jesus’ call to turn the other cheek and love one’s enemy? What does it take to embrace these teachings, which many of us... quite honestly... find foolish?  It's a very simple answer.... We need to stay rooted in Christ, to keep our trajectory always aimed toward heaven!  It is an easy solution, but very hard in "the doing".  I pray that we all may keep our focus on Christ and do as he taught us to do.
