In today’s first reading from the Acts of the Apostles we hear, “The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they had everything in common.” We hear something similar in the writings of St. Angela, “Live in harmony, one heart, one will, long for it, search for it, embrace it with all your strength.” This is truly the way we should seek to live our lives each day. We should look for the common good and not be so concerned with our own comfort. As we live this day let us remember that we are called to see the good in every situation and in one another. Take time today to compliment someone, to help someone, to listen to someone and be that example of Christ that we are called to be.
