Thursday of the 3 week in ordinary time ‘c’
It is difficult to believe people in this world. Some politicians lie to us and take advantage of our trust. People are divided due to religious beliefs, nationality, language, or the color of skin. At times we even lose trust in our priests and bishops and end up thinking: Who in this world is right, whom to believe? It is hard. Even this recent pandemic divided us as a people -- who is right? What is good for me, what is wrong; is everyone in this world trying to take advantage of me? political leaders, church leaders and wealthy companies that try to sell their products no matter what? Today Jesus is reminding us that there will be a time when everything will be brought into the light and to justice. There will come a time when all lies will be brought to light and all truth revealed. “For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light.” One day, we will have all the answers.
