Msgr. Pope on Our Lives as Part of the Big Picture

"In Wednesday's reading, the Acts of the Apostles sets forth an event that amounts to a tale of one Church in two cities or regions. It illustrates well a couple of points: that the Church is always in need of reform and that our lives are not merely about us and what we want."

In a recent commentary, Monsignor Charles Pope (pastor of Holy Comforter-Saint Cyprian Parish, Washington, DC) reflected on our potential to "become self-absorbed and think that our situation is the only thing on God's radar" and on our lives being also "about what others need, and what others see and can contribute."
