Next Door 5 Oct 2019
In the picture below you see a variety of clocks in a shop. It is not just one clock alone that can serve many homes. More clocks are needed. Also on the path of holiness, we need like minded people. We are called to serve together many locations which are in need for good
timing. The good news we need to spread does not differ a lot from the good news that others are called to spread. It is like time on clocks. The clocks however may look quite different. We all are called to show and spread the love of God.
Rejoice and be Glad (Gaudete et Exsultate)
6. Nor need we think only of those already beatified and canonized. The Holy Spirit bestows holiness in abundance among God's holy and faithful people, for
it has pleased God to make men and women holy and to save them, not as individuals without any bond between them, but rather as a people who might acknowledge him in truth and serve him in holiness. In salvation history, the Lord saved one people. We are never completely ourselves unless we belong to a people. That is why no one is saved alone, as an isolated individual. Rather, God draws us to himself, taking into account the complex fabric of interpersonal relationships present in a human community. God wanted to enter into the life and history of a people.
Next Door is the title of chapter 6 in the message of our Pope.
The clocks have many similarities
