Jesus has some harsh words today for men he encountered who were severe in their judgment of others. He described examples of heartless men who imposed burdens on others and did not lift a finger to help.
Today we celebrate the examples of those who would come to know and care: Saint Hedwig and Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque; two women who carved a unique space in the world of their day. In each of their life situations, they worked to create a space of comfort, acceptance, and love.
Let us draw inspiration today in our prayers, alone or with our family, reach out to others who still do not know of the priceless kindness of Christ.
