“There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness and truth.” (Leo Tolstoy) - Daily Bible Reflections June 17,2015


SIMPLICITY
 
“So that your almsgiving maybe secret.” – Matthew 6:4
 
       How would you define “simplicity”? It was during one of the faculty formation meetings that this question was posed. Among several views raised, I was most satisfied with the definition that simplicity means “purity of intention.” So I don’t have this virtue if I join the mission team because I want to travel. Neither does a priest who chose his vocation to give in to a hometown wish to have a priest from their town. Nor a volunteer who served Yolanda victims just to be one with the crowd.
       Jesus warns us against “performing religious acts for people to see.” He wants us to be singleminded for Him. He wants us to be simple. He wants us to be pure.
       For the many of us who would fall short from the expectations of the Lord, the call is to pray and ask for grace. The good news is that the intention and desire to be pure is good enough for Jesus! Cristy Galang (cristy_cc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness and truth.” (Leo Tolstoy)
 
Lord Jesus, please purify my intentions, my motives and all that is in me, that I may develop the virtue of simplicity and be pleasing before You.
 
St. Joseph Cafasso, pray for us.
