"If you find a perfect church, by all means join it! Then it will no longer be perfect."
"The Kingdom of heaven is like this. Some fishermen throw their net out in the lake and catch all kinds of fish. When the net is full, they pull it to shore and sit down to divide the fish: the good ones go into the buckets, the worthless ones are thrown away. It will be like this at the end of the age."
-Matthew 13: 47-49
The church is like a net that fishermen cast into the sea. The Church can't discriminate either. Like a net, it is open to everyone in its path: good people and bad people, thoughtful people and thoughtless people. Therefore, when we find people like this in the Church, we should not be disturbed. Jesus said that it would be this way.
How should I react to people who seem to live one life in church and another life outside of church?
As I read this I feel that Saint Joseph mirrors the Church, we are here to accept all peoples and attempt to help them all to develop into productive people of society with character, values, and a purpose. My hope for our Saint Joseph community is that we do this with all people we encounter. This is not always easy, but we must not allow evil to prevail! As good people of God we must help guide all that we meet and treat them with respect. None of us are perfect, but for good people to stand by and do nothing when they encounter evil is to be evil themselves. Step up, stand up, step out, and be the positive change you want to see in the world!
Saint Joseph our guide and guardian - Pray for us
Live Jesus in our hearts - Forever
