Message From Fr. John...

To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family: 

The Lord tells us in the Gospel of Mark. “the measure by which you measure will be measured out to you.”  This week’s readings tell us some of the consequences of this teaching in our lives.  The Book of Sirach tells us that if our only response to offenses in our life is to be angry, then the Lord’s anger will be what we receive from God.  The question of ask ourselves is this; since we are all sinners who deserve anger for our offenses against God, what is it that we desire to receive?  Of course it is mercy and forgiveness.  Wouldn’t we prefer the help of another to overcome our weakness?  Then as God meets our infidelity with love and forgiveness, we should do the same.  This is what we learn from the Gospel parable today.  The king, who is God, is willing to show compassion to us.  We have an infinite debt to God, which we cannot pay.  Offering homage to God, stimulates his love for us and opens the door to the mercy and compassion of God.  God then expects his servant to do likewise with those who are in debt to him.  St. Paul tell id in his letter to the Ephesians, “do not let the sun go down on your anger and give no opportunity to the devil.”  We should realize that our anger is a trap for us and that it does more harm to us than to the one that we are angry with.

Fr. John
