Friends of the Rosary:
As we read today (MT 23:1-12), at that time, Jesus spoke about the failure of organized religion running Israel:
“The scribes and the Pharisees have taken their seat on the chair of Moses. Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice.”
Today, we notice the same problem. It’s not only the Vatican, the hierarchy, and the Bishops. It’s all of us. We say nice things, but do not follow with our example. Simply, we don’t live by the example. And that’s why unfaithful people do not feel attracted to the eternal truth.
We might not change this situation easily. At least, let’s not fall into spiritual pride, and say that we are doing well. By cultivating the virtue of humility, we might start moving forward.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
