Saturday of the 5th Week of Easter

If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first.

In today’s homily, Father Jerry shares about hatred and indifference as he quotes Elie Wiesel, the late Romanian-born American writer and professor. He said, “Indifference is more dangerous than anger and hatred,” he says, “Anger can at times be creative… but indifference is never creative… Indifference is always the friend of the enemy.”

Father Jerry adds that, “We can become so self absorbed, so jaded, so cynical that we are no longer moved by the plight of the poor and vulnerable. We remain unaffected by violence and war. We refuse to acknowledge that our own acts can hurt others, and we can reach a point where we’re indifferent to God.”

But there’s a bright light in today’s video above. Feel free to share it.
