THURSDAY ON THE SECOND WEEK OF EASTER

"We must obey God rather than men", says Peter. To say that the Apostles went through a lot doesn't come close. They were not afraid to be in trouble with the religious authorities. They didn't cave in to all sorts of conflict. They probably had a meltdown on a few occasions but it was taken with a grain of salt. They were prepared to face anything for the sake of the truth of Jesus Christ risen from the dead. God is the supreme authority in all things. While the whole country battle over the best route to take exercising cautious optimism, the common good (a very broad term) - the center of this most difficult conversation (health, safety and economy), there is a strong need to listen to all sides of the equation. There's nothing more important, though, than saving precious lives and the preservation of it. These are hot button issues. There are no easy answers.  After engaging in straight talk, we take it to prayer and offer it to Lord. The wisdom and the words of John's gospel once again lifts our worries up and takes us to the heavenly realm of things. What better way to end this short reflection with the great Amen!
