Reality Check

  /   Friday April 07, 2006  

Just a little while ago, I read this gem from a sermon by Father Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household. It gave me a reality check. Basically, he’s saying that our commitment is often a kind of “fair weather” or “half-hearted” commitment. In other words, as soon as it is inconvenient for us to live out the faith, we tend to falter. Have I ever failed to do something, citing the fact that it is too difficult as an excuse? You bet I have.

I need to recognize the part I played in Christ’s sufferings. If he was willing to suffer for love of me, shouldn’t I be willing to suffer for love of him. After all, if I trust him, I know that he will not be outdone in generosity.
