Snowy Cold January Night
I was reading our local Catholic newspaper tonight. In it there was an article by our wonderful Archbishop, Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M CAP. about Judge John Roll. He quoted one of his own homilies and I would like to quote it too:
"We're citizens of heaven first. Our time here is limited. This life passes. Eternity is forever. We need to act in this world accordingly, with lives of Christian service to the poor and afflicted -- including the unborn child, the immigrant, the homeless and the elderly. The more authentically Catholic we are in our lives, our choices, our actions and our convictions, the more truly we will contribute to the moral and political life of our nation."
My mind is on eternity, and I realize how far I have to go. God please help me to grow towards you.
