Back up and running

I read an article today which stated that Millennials have a "BS meter".  The article, which is not worth reading, referred to the fact that many Millennials are looking for the real deal in religion. This is true. They are not looking for the prosperity Gospel their parents follow, or Liberation Theology.

Now, the author solution was compromise, but the real answer is the radical Gospel of Christ. Today's First Reading reveals God halting His punishment on Israel and bringing the nation into peace. But, the last verse reminds all of the necessity of following the ways of God, not men. The Ten Commandments are not to be ignored, nor the old strictures of the Church regarding any sins. As noted in the perfection series over and over, no one is on the way to perfection without first eliminating mortal and even venial sin.

Hosea 14:10Douay-Rheims 

10 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know these things? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall in them.
