READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Job 1-5
BECOMING JESUS’ FRIENDS
Yesterday’s story about Bl. Damien De Veuster would be a beautiful illustration of today’s gospel passage. There is no hell of Molokai anymore, but hell continues to exist around us. Hell is where there is no love because even God cannot penetrate hell. We are chosen by the Lord to bring love into the many hells around us and so make him enter and become present. A marriage can become hell. We could with great sensitivity suggest to a couple in trouble to attend a marriage encounter. Hell can be among young people who are into drugs. It might be difficult to reach out to them but it is not impossible. Hell can be in a neighborhood where neighbors hate each other. Instead of closing our door or joining in an endless shouting at each other, we could refrain from anything that adds to the hatred and dare to suggest a dialogue. Hell can be found in poorly run hospitals where people suffer and don’t find the care they need. We can go and bring some “sunshine” into their misery. Yes, there are many ‘hells’ found in our society where we can fulfill the task Jesus gave us.
