Words and Deeds. Thought for the Day 5 January. “Ubuntu”

Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deeds and in truth. From 1 John 3:11-21.  

Gloria Mason was getting ready for the new school year.  She had been teaching for many years and felt as if she had become a little stale. During the holidays she had made a retreat and done much spiritual reading. Although she lived alone she was close to her extended family and had spent Christmas together with them.  There had been some old scores to settle and she had been able to help with that.   Now as she prepared herself she decided to make an Ubuntu poster and a prayer card for herself and her class with these words:  Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deeds and in truth. From 1 John 3:11-21.  

Pope Francis.  Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy. Jesus of Nazareth by his words, actions and his entire person reveals the mercy of God.  MV1
