Most Holy Name of Mary
1 Corinthians 10:14-22. To you, Lord, I will offer a sacrifice of praise – Psalm 115(116):12-13, 17-18. Luke 6:43-49.
The struggle for integrity
Integrity and inner consistency are always things we can sense in others and notice from afar. It is unfortunate that we are so accustomed to meeting mixed intentions in others, that we find it refreshing to come across someone with real, deep integrity.
We can’t help but respect those people, and rightly so, because to maintain the inner honesty that Christ is asking of us is not a simple undertaking. Our lives are a collage of events, moments, encounters, conversations, being asked to render up something to or to take in something from another.
To maintain consistency not only in our actions but in our thoughts and inner movements is a constant struggle. Often the words have already left our mouth when we realise they have come from the evil part of our hearts.Email this Print This Page
