Lk. 11:29-32 St. Callistus
St. Callitus was a pope who was for his time open to people, for example he admitted murders and adulters back to communion into the Church. He was martyred for it. Our scripture calls us to see Jesus in our midst in the most unseen ways. I see Jesus in each homeless person I meet, in each person of wealth whose lives are sterile and lifeless, that I meet, in each person of love that I meet--and seeing Jesus upturns our ways of looking at the culture wars, our ways of eating, in fact all of our lives--Dr. Will Tuttle sums it up for me:
Our love, to actually be love, must be acted upon and lived. Developing our capacity for love is not only the means of evolution; it is the end as well, and when we fully embody love, we will know the truth of our oneness with all life. This makes us free.
