Thursday of the Thirty-Third Week in Ordinary Time

Come, let us adore the Lord, for he is our God.





43. Is my facebook page or twitter account a positive form of mutual support, or is it simply an association of “friends” or “followers” united against a perceived common enemy (president, president-elect, clerics…) that mostly consists of posts of hatred and destruction???

many times, i am a comfortable catholic and i “get upset when (my) days are filled with problems“, so i turn to “Digital media ,exposing myself to the risk of addiction, isolation and a gradual loss of contact with concrete reality, blocking the development of authentic interpersonal relationships”.[46]

other times i’m a maga-catholic that ignores “how COVID-19 has disproportionately and devastatingly affected the most vulnerable“, because i’m, “lacking the physical gestures, facial expressions, moments of silence, body language and even the smells, the trembling of hands, the blushes and perspiration that speak to me and are a part of human communication”, and therefore i “do not really build community; instead, i tend to disguise and expand the very individualism that finds expression in xenophobia and in contempt for the vulnerable”…

sometimes i’m a socialist-catholic who forms, “Digital relationships, which do not demand the slow and gradual cultivation of friendships, stable interaction or the building of a consensus that matures over time, and has the appearance of sociability”…

I pray to become a Catholic who hears the voice of the one who is worthy to open the scroll, telling me upon the time of my visitation that, “Digital connectivity is not enough to build bridges nor capable of uniting humanity, and thus place myself “among frontline promoters of sustainable human development and peace at the grassroots“, where the lowly are adorned with victory !!!

Today’s Scriptures

“Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”

RV 5:2

R. (Rev. 5:10) The Lamb has made us a kingdom of priests to serve our God.


R. Alleluia.

and he adorns the lowly with victory.

PS 149:4

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

If today you hear his voice,

harden not your hearts.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

PS 95:8

“…you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”

LK 19:44
