prayer diary Friday 14 February 2014 (St Valentine's Day; Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

They were astounded beyond measure, saying, ‘He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.’ 
Mark. 7.27

People were quick to wonder at the miracles, but far slower to heed his call to repentance. So we must not be surprised when many today are all too willing to enlist the Church's aid in various kinds of social programmes, even as they mock, undermine, or condemn Church teaching. 
That doesn't mean we should not still help.
