Catholic-link.com – “A profound microcosm of life, in 4 minutes…” Today’s video produced by the group Everyone Matters, invites us to take a look in the other’s world.
A Deeper Look Don’t you ever get tired of thinking of you all the time? Seriously. Doesn’t it become boring, redundant, stagnant? Do other people really matter to you?
One of the most profound and beautiful ideas of Christian living is the idea of living “for” others. We are called to do so not just as a moral obligation, as something that we “should do”, but also, and more importantly, because the other person has authentic value. The reality of their worthiness, of their dignity speaks to us. The look in their eyes commands a response! Indifference is not an option. Yet, how many times are we blind or deaf to such values?
Many times I think (and I speak from my own experience) it is because we are afraid. We are afraid of responsiblity. We are afraid of what the encounter with the other person might demand of us, what discomfort and pain we might be called to face. And yes, in one sense those fears are legitimate. In opening up our eyes and our lives to the reality of the others, responsibilities, demands, difficulties, crosses are sure to flow in. But, are they not worth it? Can we honestly look into the eyes of another and say that he or she isn’t worth it? Are we so shallowly blind to what is truly worthy of sacrifice and to where true happiness is to be found?
Being a Christian means essentially changing over from being for oneself to being for one another (Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI).
