It’s just us sinners.” A healthy family life requires frequent use of three phrases: “May I? Thank you, and I’m sorry” and “never, never, never end the day without making peace.” 6. “Being a Christian is not just about following commandments: it is about letting Christ take possession of our lives and transform them.” 7. “A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.” 8. “Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.” 9. “Dear young people, do not be afraid of making decisive choices in life. Have faith; the Lord will not abandon you!” 10. “It is the disease of cowards, who do not have the courage to speak upfront and so talk behind one’s back. … Watch out against the terrorism of gossip!” 11. “Are you angry with someone? Pray for that person. That is what Christian love is.” 12. “How marvelous it would be if, at the end of the day, each of us could say: today I have performed an act of charity towards others!” 13. “Jesus understands our weaknesses and sins; and he forgives us if we allow ourselves to be forgiven.” 14.“Not only does each person have the freedom and the right to say what they think for the common good, they have a duty to do so, because while it is true that it is wrong to react with violence, If my good friend Mr Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch in the nose. … It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others. … There are so many people who speak badly about religions or other religions, who make fun of them, who make a game out of the religions of others. They are provocateurs. And what happens to them is what would happen to Mr Gasparri if he says a curse word against my mother. There is a limit. … One cannot make war… kill in the name of one’s own religion, that is, in the name of God.” Please join us for “Pastor’s Talk’s this Sunday, February 15 and next Sunday, February 22 in the KC Hall for “Mercy in the City”, St. Henry’s Lenten Study.

Where does God rank in that list? If He’s not first, you have some work to do. Putting God first in everything helps develop the attitude of “ I am grateful for the gifts God gave me” instead of “I want more”. For most people gratitude leads to generosity.
