Take Five for Faith
Sunday, October 26, 2014
Our nation’s is not the first immigration crisis in
history. Consider the Israelites suffering in Egypt
before their grand exodus. God reminds them of their
own past: “You shall not molest or oppress an alien,
for you were once aliens yourselves.” The influx of
people seeking a better life in the United States is
problematic on many levels, but whatever solution is
worked out, it must be just, and our attitude as
Christians should never disdain immigrants—“legal”
or not. God’s attitude is clear: “If ever you wrong [the
widow or orphan] and they cry out to me, I will surely
hear their cry.” Even as we work for the rule of law we
may never “wrong” any person in the process. Our
compassion must mirror God’s.

As days get shorter, it’s helpful to remember the
importance of light. Light helps growth and vision. In
light of certain information, you can make better
decisions; with a light heart, you can rejoice in others’
good news. “Live as children of light,” Saint Paul
wrote. That means being free enough to see and be
seen by others, being humble enough to free others
through forgiveness, and being aware enough to live
with gratitude for all you’ve been given. In essence, it
means living a life befitting eternal life—a life that’s a
light to the world.
Tuesday, October 28
Feast of St. Simon and St. Jude
The American Catholic website reminds us that
“holiness does not depend on human merit, culture,
personality, effort, or achievement. It is entirely God’s
creation and gift.” God makes saints of whomever God
chooses. An important lesson especially when one of
today’s saints, Simon the Zealot, in his own day would
have been considered a terrorist! Jesus is not
endorsing religious extremism, but Simon being
chosen to follow Jesus reminds us that we are all in
God’s hands and are being shaped and re-shaped by
those loving hands.

Obedience is a discipline. For a child, it means
honoring your parents by listening well and acting
respectfully. With age and wisdom comes a deeper
understanding of obedience. Mature obedience is the
call to listen attentively to and for God in everything.
This means coming to know the voice of God through
prayer and reflection and being willing to respond
openly to God’s call wherever it may lead you. That’s
not always an easy task, but ultimately such obedience
is the discipline of discipleship—a call rooted in
freedom, fidelity, and love. Are you ready to give it a
Thursday, October 30
The Old and New Testaments abound with vivid
imagery of epic war between good and evil, with
Michael the Archangel often leading the forces of
heaven. The church teaches that Michael is also a
model of a spiritual warrior who battles evil within.
He also accompanies souls at the time of death. In all
of these roles, he is the guardian of the church. In
1886, Pope Leo XIII introduced the Prayer to Saint
Michael, which begins: “Blessed Michael, Archangel,
defend us in the hour of conflict; be our safeguard
against the wickedness and snares of the devil.” Be
grateful for all the angels—celestial or otherwise—in
your life.
Friday, October 31
Halloween reminds us that the world can be a scary
place with darkened doors and creepy creatures. But
nothing is more scary than the worries and frets that
rattle around in our own skulls. Don’t let the fear of
what could go wrong prevent you from embracing
what is right. Jesus never let the threat of another’s
scorn stop him from a compassionate act. As Saint
Francis says, “Where there is charity and wisdom,
there is neither fear nor ignorance.” When gloom and
doom set in, gather your courage and walk toward the
Saturday, November 1
Solemnity of All Saints
What does it mean to belong to God? We can look to
the example of the saints, whose lives witness to the
great power of love. Among them are saints, such as
the early martyrs who we know from legends told
over centuries. You may know many other saints more
personally—holy people you’ve met in your own
lifetimes. Maybe they were the peacemakers in a
troubled neighborhood, the person at work with
unshakeable kindness, the student who respected
everyone. On this Solemnity of All Saints, spend time
in prayer with a saint whose love has made an
impression on your life.
