We are given a very clear definition of what we are called to do in this life in today's Gospel reading: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, care for the sick, visit those in prison. It's clear and it is fairly simple and yet after 2000 years many of us still stand condemned by these words: condemned for our lack of action on them (me chief among them).
I must be cranky this morning 'cause I don't think I have to say anything else.
