Much More Than Food
When we “eat out” – in a restaurant or café – we see and meet the waiter but not the chef. Both have work to do. We like the service and the food to be good..
When we visit someone’s home and have a “bite to eat” we pay less attention to the food. It is the person or people of the house who matter most. The relationship we have with them, the time spent in friendship: these are what count.
Today, Jesus begs Martha of Bethany and begs us to learn this lesson: to let our relationship with him grow. Then the deeds that we do will be all the better and will carry his flavour.
Famine Looms in Ethiopia
Climate change is adding to the threat of yet another famine in Ethiopia, East Africa. The patterns of ocean currents and wind currents
have altered, stopping the vital rains in tropical countries. Then deluges come and wash away
the thin arid soils. Crops can’t grow.
Irish aid-agencies Trócaire, Concern, and Goal
are working flat out. Please keep them in mind.
