April 19. Busi picked up the sharing from the day before. “You can see that not everyone thought like those followers did, willing to
give up everything. What intrigues me as that the Jewish leaders were jealous that those people were so committed to their beliefs and to each other that they were prepared to give up what they owned. I wonder if they had a guilty conscience because they were not living the way they should. I can learn something from that too, I must admit, that in a strange way, I do feel resentful or even jealous sometimes when I see really good committed people.”
Scripture: Filled with jealousy they arrested the apostles and put them in prison. At night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out and said, ‘Go and stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this Life.’ Acts 5:17-19. Pope Francis. The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change. The Creator does not abandon us, he never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us. Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home. I want to recognize, encourage and thank all those striving in countless ways to guarantee the protection of the home which we share. LS13.
Reflect, share and act, pray. How active is our family in this regard?
