“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away. Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into a fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”
Sorting calls for differentiating the good from the bad “fish.”
Take some time to become aware of the good and the bad influences around you today.
Ask for the grace to always choose the good ones.
Heritage word—“Let us strive to be true (Christians) so that the love of Christ may radiate into the world and people may say of us, ‘Look how they love one another.’”
(Sr, Mary Raphaelita, 7th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
