George was looking back over the years that he had tried to build relationships with his sons. Each one is so different, he thought to himself but these teenagers are not easy. I can’t help but think of the Parable of the Two Sons. The father asked one to go out and work in the fields. He said, “no” but did go while the other who said, “yes” didn’t go. It’s like that too when we talk about recycling or environmental awareness. Some of the family agree but do we actually do anything? It is serious now. Maybe I need to do more to show them how to be responsible.
Little children let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:11-21
Pope Francis: Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy. By his words and actions and his entire person he reveals the mercy of God. MV1
