St Matthias, Apostle

Acts 1:15-17, 20-26, Ps 113, John 15:9-17

Love one another

In ‘Hornet’s Nest’ by Patricia Cornwell, a police officer and a reporter are sitting in a hospital waiting room. They see a young man, shivering and sweating, having difficulty breathing. People were sitting as far from him as possible. Clearly, he had AIDS. The police officer gives water, a blanket and comfort to the man. She says, “We’ve got to bring humanity back into what we do or there’s no hope. It must be about all of us getting along and helping each other. We’re one body.”

We cannot simply be observers.

We must love, really love, one another.
