One of our Sisters found some humor in the readings for Mass today. Because of the memorial of Blessed John Soreth, the first reading was taken from the Book of the prophet Ezekiel. It was the passage on God shepherding Israel (Ezekiel 34:11-20). There is a phrase which mentions God's care for all His sheep: ".. I will take care of the fat and the healthy" Sister turned to me and said with an impish glint in her eye: "God is with us, don't you see? He says he'll take care of the fat and the healthy! He means ME!" I could not help but laugh! Oh well, at least she has that good sense of humor.
