I heard something on the radio recently that made me start crying. Crying...in the parking lot of Barnes & Noble. What was so sad?
A radio commentary...
The commentators were putting down Rick Warren. Now, I know there are those who either love or hate his books. That was not the subject. Here was the subject, here were the words.
"We are near the end of the age, Christ is coming again soon. We should be reaching the world for Christ. What is he doing spending his time with AIDS?"
I cried...in the parking lot...Barnes & Noble.
Have we come so far from the first Advent that we have forgotten the message?
That which we do for the least of these, we do for Him? Are we not His hands, His feet, His LOVE?
Would not our Lord, who healed the lepers...want to heal AIDS patients? Who will reach out, if not the Church? Who will give hope to the babies and children who have lost mommy and daddy? Must we give them the Ten Spiritual Laws when they are first in need of medicine and food?
It makes me want to cry all over again.
