This Week in Catholic Liturgy: Warm Reception
St. James warns against the foul spirit that spawns all manner of conflict in our world: jealousy and selfish ambition; unchecked passions and the "relationships" that ensue. Jesus suggests that we should adopt the manner of children in order to be most receptive to His Kingdom. Since parents often determine that their unruly children need a "time-out," maybe it's time for us to have one. We need to be still and think about what we've done, to consider whether there's a better way...and, for that matter, a better goal.
