Thought for the day: Being busy is a sort of cultural value among us, and rightly. “If you want something done, ask a busy person.” But, of course, the question of balance arises. There are indeed other needs and other hungers. These include simple human things like time for friends. Even hospitality, which is always work, can get in the way of really meeting. Something similar can be said of time for reflection, meditation and prayer. Time is not really the issue, after all, we manage to find time to waste on TV, tablets etc. It is more a question of insight, choice and decision, lest we overlook and even lose “the better part.” Prayer: Help us, Lord, to listen to the stirrings of our hearts. When we meet friends, help us to really meet. When we meet you, help us too to be present to you.

Pope Francis – Tweet: I invite you to go out and look for those elderly persons who are most alone, at home or in residences where they are guests. Let’s make sure no one feels alone. Visiting the elderly who live alone is a work of mercy in our time!
