‘ … what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’  “And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Mt 25: 45,46

These are the words of Jesus in a Gospel passage known as “The Judgment of the Nations.”  Those who neglected others in need will be condemned and those who came to their aid will have eternal life.

Ukraine.  Jordan and Egypt, in their desire to respond to the savage killing of their people.  A vacuum in Iraq.  The Kurds.  No defense at Bengazhi.  Libya left without American presence or support.  Yeman evacuated.  Israel abandoned.  No particular response to ISIS.  Negotiating with a terrorist state.

The cost of not believing.

We once believed.  We use to help.

Think about it.  Is this who you are?  Is this who we are?  Who speaks for you?  Do you speak up?

I believe love is the most courageous act of which a human being is capable.  The word courage even stems from the root word for “heart” (coeur).

Vanna Bonta

No faith, no courage.  No courage, no love.

Shalom.
