Thanks Kevin, and good morning
Just to add to my comments I should like to demonstrate the same mind thought that seems to be prevelent in our people today. Think for a moment that we are a-- me,me,.me and I, I, I, society. We have a SOCIAL GOVERNMENT that gives us everything from food to phones and Housing to cars. It is take, take, take. Where is give, give, give? In addition we have a highly regulation society.
Addressing the same look at the Church as being the SPIRITUAL GOVERNMENT that had as a beginning the Ten Commandments but has, because of the man made highly regulation morphed into the perception that it is a give, give give spiritual government .
We as a society et all have been structured to believe that we don't have to fish as someone will give us a fish. This is pervasive not only in the Catholic Church but in most Religions and Faiths as well as society in general.
I can just see God up in heaven shaking His Head and saying "Where did I go wrong?" "I gave them the World and my Son, what more do they Want?"
Is it not time to use that great gift of Free Will and use it for His glory and not for our own personal quirks? It's a wonderful and great life out there. You just have to go and take it. I guarantee it will be a fantastic ride.
