Piety and devotion girls and boys

Jun 17, 2020

June 17.   “Now girls, no showing off any more.”  The boys teased the girls mostly about how they looked but the girls got their own back by challenging the guys on how they acted. “Remember the ex-singer Jub Jub, he was a real show-off and where did that get him, jail for killing innocent schoolchildren with his street drag racing.”  It’s the same in church.  Some young people go to show off how holy they are but are they really? Others just go to show off their new clothes and some even their cars. Let’s take this seriously because it also concerns a reward in heaven.”

Beware of practising your piety before men in order to be seen by them.  For then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.  Matt 6:1-6.  Pope Francis: If we are to share our lives with others and generously give of ourselves we also have to realise that every person is worthy of our giving.  Not for their physical appearance, abilities, language, way of thinking or for any satisfaction that we might receive but because they are God’s handiwork.  EG 274
