Theme: A KINGDOM OF LOVE AND COMPASSION
"YOU DID IT TO ME"
THE KING OF ALL CREATION
"I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the wounded ...
I shall be a true shepherd to them ALL"
Does God have favourites? Obviously not!
Our Lord identifies himself with the most vulnerable in society.
"As long as you did it to one of these, you did it to me"
HIS KINGDOM IS A CARING COMMUNITY.
A KINGDOM OF LOVE MERCY AND COMPASSION.
THOSE called BLESSED are not conscious of having done
anything special -
"When did we see YOU a stranger ... to one of these you did
it to me"
"Let us remember that the Church is only ONE generation
from extinction" (Dr. George Carey)
YES, OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE AN IMPORTANT -
IF SOMETIMES FORGOTTEN PART OF THE CHURCH.
And a few YOUTHFUL GEMS!
It must be wonderful to be young and KNOW EVERYTHING!
Age is a very high price to pay for MATURITY!
"The young people today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for parents or old age; they are impatient of all restraint; they talk as though they know everything" (Peter the Monk - 700 years ago!!!)
The worst danger that confronts the younger generation is the example set by THE OLDER GENERATION!!! - sad but TRUE!
