FULL MOON on 2nd September.

REFLECTION: Cardinal Sarah, for example, warns us of the “Judas moment,” the temptation to which not a few have succumbed. It is the moment we are living through right now, and unless we give it a wide berth, we too shall end up betraying Christ. How? By becoming impatient with God’s ways, which seem so slow in bringing about the changes we imagine will make everything right. The perfect world we have grown weary of waiting for God to produce. And so we’ve stiffened our resolve to do it ourselves. Forgetting, of course, that we cannot accomplish anything by ourselves, the merely human inevitably becoming inhuman. Certainly we cannot reform the Church on our own dime. “First sanctity,” Sarah advises, “then structures.” And if your bishop is not a saint? Become one yourself, he advises. — Regis Martin, S.T.D.
