CAESAR’S SUNDAY THOUGHT
Deacon Julius Caesar Kamukama, a professional pharmacist is a clergy of the Archdiocese of Mbarara.
Readings: Acts 5:27b-32, 40b-41. Rev 5:11-14. Jn 21:1-19
On earth, we invest a lot of resources (energy, time, materials, etc) in support of various causes. We give large chunks of our lives for such things as pleasure, power, comfort and convenience, etc. Sometimes, we even sacrifice our lives for power-hungry individuals ( in exchange for a few pieces of silver).
Clearly, though, we could do better. There are higher and longer lasting causes to suffer, or even die, for. It’s not worth it for a generation to sell their soul for a few pieces of silver. Ultimately, of course, only Love, the cause of Jesus Christ, can offer the highest fulfillment- actually, and in promise. Only His name is essentially above any other name. What are you expending your life for? Why are you making the sacrifices you’re making?
May Jesus Christ grant us the grace to offer our resources and our lives for worthwhile causes. May the Holy Spirit enable us to re-evaluate our priorities, responsibilities, tendencies, major life choices, and world views.
And may Almighty God bless you, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
