Something worse than COVID-19

Do not sin anymore so that nothing worse may happen to you John 5:14 This past year People have been rightly focused Most obsessed About COVID-19 It has dominated news cycles Been the focus of discussions everywhere Precausions shuttered businesses world-wide for months All this is understandable given the overwhelming number Deaths In today’s gospel Jesus healed a man who had been incapacitated for 18 years After the man was healed Jesus admonished him to stop sinning, …so that nothing worse may happen to you” Much worse than physicall illness is sin The resulting is death of one’s soul If we believe the warning of Jesus Wouldn’t it make sense to be even more concerned about our spiritual health than COVID-19? We wear masks Practice social distancing to protect ourselves from the virus We should do even more to foster the health of our souls Stephen J. Rosetti Turned to Poetry: Jac R. M.
