It means we need to stop viewing ourselves as needing to win, or others needing to lose. It means we need to take off the political glasses that prevent us from loving our neighbors as ourselves because they don’t think as we do. It means we must sublimate ourselves and be more like the man at the back of the temple than the Pharisee.
It’s hard in this day and age, to know what to do so as to remain faithful, and yet be a faithful lover of those you miss at the Eucharist table. The best way, is to remember, on your own, you will catch nothing. You will be on the shore, mending your nets, with which you have labored all night to no effect.nnDrop your nets, follow Christ, and you will find a catch near bursting, and a heart equally so.
