Pentecost +4 - Year C
Knowing ourselves as well as we do, is our praise a joyful expression of the moment or a calculated technique to get something (albeit, later than sooner)?
One way or another, we are still asking an old, old question: “What do I need to do to escape the wrath to come?” We are asking to be led because of our enemies.
What is a better question to ask in this day? What is a better motivation for asking?
These are serious questions as I hold a lamp up to see, a la Diogenes the Cynic, if I can find a person asking a pertinent question.
