Weekly Inspiration by Fr. Sugu

Self determination leads to spiritual blindness

We can be blindly arrogant and selfish. For some, the lens through which we view life is the lens of self-benefit. Having this <em>myopic</em> vision, the plight and station of others are off our radar and of no genuine concern.

Being self-sufficient and resilient, we can wonder if all of this “God-talk” is for real. If we believe we are solely responsible for our destiny and well-being, what place is there for God?

Tangible faith requires an actual change of heart, a conversion. It involves walking a courageous journey of transformation that consists of a shift in priorities and focus. Humility becomes the order of the day. An authentic loving relationship with God blossoms within a person’s soul. God becomes an ever-faithful companion.
