Holy Confusion!

A though about Mt 4: 12-17. 23-25 (He went round... proclaiming the Good News... curing all kinds of diseases and sickness among the people.)

In our fervour of devotion and faith, we often confuse doing good with good itself; practices of piety with spirituality; proclaiming the Good News with being the Good News. We are hence called to discern the Spirit which guides and motivates us. Are we moved by the commandments of the Church or by the person of Christ? Are we gladly stuck to the wonders of the Lord or do we move on to seek the Lord himself?

“What reward do you wish for your labours?” Jesus asked and St Thomas Aquinas replied, “Nothing less than you, O Lord!”
