Thursday of the 4th week of Lent
Are we stiff-necked people? When did we start becoming stiff-necked? I remember when I was a child, I too was stiff-necked. I reluctantly obeyed my parents. But I came to realize the gravity of my actions.
If we claim we are followers of Jesus, why is it easy for us to retaliate against others? Why in spite of 500 years of Christianity, we remain sacramentalized, but not evangelized? Why are we not eager to serve the Church, as if serving God is just an option? Now, I ask again, are we stiff-necked or not?
Though we are stiff-necked, Jesus would continue revealing himself to us through witnesses, to remind us, and to save us.
