Sunday thoughts #23: do good

Posted: May 25, 2013 in believing, doing good, sunday thoughts

The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ:  all of us, not justimages-143 Catholics,Everyone!  “Father, the atheists?”  Even the atheists.  Everyone!  And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class!  We are created children in the likeness of God, and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all!  And we all have a duty to do good.  And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace.  If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter.  We need that so much.  We must meet one another doing  good.  “But I don’t believe, Father.  I am an atheist!”  But do good:  we will meet one another there.

Pope Francis

Not everyone who is saying to me Lord, Lord shall come into the reign of Heaven; but the one who is doing the will of my father who is in the heavens.
