Putting Christ in Our Boat This Independence Day

In today's Mass Readings we hear of angels urging Lot to take his family out of Sodom on the eve of its destruction (Genesis 19:15-29) and Christ rebuking the storm on the sea (Matthew 8:23-27).  If we overlay these two accounts we have a powerful reminder for us on our nation's birthday.

Firstly, that our moral life has consequences on others and reverberates in nature (something even the ancient Greeks believed). Our sins affect our garden.

And secondly, we can build up our nation by placing ourselves, personally, under God.

If we get this 'Eucharistic relationship' right, and step inside God's boat, we become good stewards of creation and  good citizens adding to the transformation of our nation into a civilization of love and true independence from sin.

Let us hold fast to 'Christ in our boat'. Let us receive him daily in the Blessed Sacrament, and we will weather the storms and be lead out of the 'burning cities' of temptation by the angles.

 

Happy Independence Day!
