30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 23, 2011

WHAT WE ARE MOTIVATED BY

This past week, a friend of mine posted a quote advocating that life is more about defence than anything else.  I can see why he posted that – we do live in a world obsessed with protection and security.

We are motivated by fear.  However, this is not what the Gospel commands.  Rather, we are to be motivated by love – of God and our neighbour

But  why should we love a God that allows for so much suffering?  And should we love neighbours that often offend us so?

Tune in to find out.
