Thursday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time
Jesus said to his disciples: “In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”
Well, after reading this article, it’s clear to me that if religion is considered a “competitor” of science, then art must be as well. After all, both God and artists keep taking us well into the future, and well before any scientist ever did! Like God, artists are honest, creative and highly skilled and imaginative. They go where no man has ever gone before!
Good humor aside, what will be important for man is that he keeps praying well into the future. For if he wishes to celebrate his future it will take much more than big eyes to get there. It will take big hearts (humility) and God’s grace! It will take prayer, lots of it.
