Quote of the day:

"What would those around you say is your identity, if they only knew of you through your works?"

~  Bishop Robert Barron, Lenten Gospel Reflections (03/26/2021)


It doesn’t do any good to go to church every Sunday if you spend the other six days of the week judging and hating.  If you want to be seen as a good person, then you have to act like one.  How many phrases do we use highlighting the difference between words and deeds?  Don’t do aa I do, do as I say.  Do you walk the talk?  Put your money where your mouth is.  Actions speak louder than words.  Your actions speak so loudly I can’t hear what you are saying.  We can say anything, we can believe anything, we can intend anything, we can feel anything – but the only thing that counts is what we actually DO, the impact we have on other lives.  A lot of folks wouldn’t recognize themselves if confronted with that reality.



"What would those around you say is your identity, if they only knew of you through your works?"

It's a good question, neh?
