At Mass this morning, I felt that "Jesus is the only one I need to attach to. Everything else in the world I can let go. He's more than sufficient for me. With him, my life is fulfilled."
On the way home over the radio, I heard more bad news as usual. One story told how a government contractor hired Fiji women by telling them that they're going to Dubai to earn high wages, but in reality shipped them to Iraq to provide service for the military. Over there they were abused, mistreated, and prevented from leaving. The story that followed was about how many veterans that have come home are still suffering terribly from their war traumas. Surely whoever started the war(s) must bear the most responsibility. What saddened me are the greed, the utter disregard of human dignity and human life, and the lack of compassion for others. Jesus is still being crucified. But he is our savior! People may not love him yet, but how foolish it is to not even worry about eternal damnation!
I want to shout to the whole world that we have a savior, who is our only bright hope in the dark world and who's all we need for eternal life.
