Thought for the day: In our day, it seems to be hard for people to make and sustain life-long commitments. We think we can always press undo and we like our freedom. But there are different freedoms. Specifically, there is freedom of choice and freedom of choosing. Freedom of choice contemplates the options; freedom of choosing concretises and makes real some specific option. There is joy in freedom of choice; there is greater joy in freedom of having chosen and having made a decision. There is no contradiction between freedom and commitment: “for freedom, Christ has set us free” as St Paul says. Prayer: We need your guidance, Lord, to discern our path in life. We need your support to sustain us on the way. We need your joy to keep us joyful. Amen.

Pope Francis – Tweet: Let us always look at young people with a smile. They carry on what we have sown. An elderly person cannot be happy without looking at young people and young people cannot move ahead in life without looking at the elderly.
