16TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME – YEAR A: 2017 To be celebrated on 23 July, 2017

“What attracts men to evil acts is not the evil in them but the good that is there, seen under a false aspect and with a distorted perspective. The good seen from that angle is only the bait in a trap. When you reach out to take it, the trap is sprung and you are left with disgust, boredom – and hatred. Sinners are people who hate everything, because their world is necessarily full of betrayal, full of illusion, full of deception. And the greatest sinners are the most boring people in the world because they are the most bored and the ones who find life most tedious.”
Thomas Merton’s book – New Seeds of Contemplation
