28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 13, 2013

Differences greatly scare people. In turn, people love putting up walls as long as they are inside of them. God desides to become an outsider in Jesus for us. He becomes one with us in our brokenness. Jesus tore down every wall that people put up. Real spiritual signs only begin when we see ourselves and others differently, as God sees us. We are called to tear down the walls of isolation. These walls can be broken when we reach out like Jesus and become His touch.
