Whose way are we walking?


Have you ever thought God is unfair?  unjust?

The scriptures this weekend engage just such thoughts.

Before you hear these texts at Mass on Sunday (or Saturday evening), take some time to read them over and look at some brief commentary on them.  And if you're bringing children to Mass with you, they'll benefit preparing to hear the Word, too.

All of this in links at this earlier post!

I don't understand- ?

in the first reading it says, "seek the Lord while he may be found, call him while he is near."

to me, it seems this is somehow saying that the Lord may be found only for a certain amount of time-
and he is near only temporarily-
(the word 'WHILE' makes me think this and feel confused)

and in the 2nd reading-
"...life is Christ, and death is gain."
what does this mean-- gain?


"I long to depart this life and be with Christ..."

for whose benefit is it more necessary that we (I) remain in the flesh?
