Rory McIlroy, one of the many talented faces who competed at the U.S. Open has been given great praise for his abilities and his youthfulness.
Amarillo is delighted to have a home town talented golfer, Ryan Palmer, showing his talent at the U.S. Open.
Are other golfers, like Tiger Woods happy to see fresh new talent there or are the “old timers” not thrilled to see others succeeding at something they have been working hard at for many years.
Why do we as humans, especially as Christians, Catholics, have a difficult time wanting someone to succeed even if it means they will excel past our own abilities?
Competition in this world is inevitable, even healthy. It pushes us to want to put our best foot forward. Competition forces us to reach outside of our comfort zone. Competition forces us to be our very best.
Does competition sometimes create a resentful monster in us? Do we rear our ugly head of envy when someone else does better than us?
Why do we have such a hard time cheering for someone else and truly wanting them to succeed?
Could it be we lack love? Have you noticed that love is such a key element in living a Christian life?
Christ asked us to love each other. When you break down the Ten Commandments you realize Christ summarizes the ten with his two great commandments.
And what are those two about?
Love! All about love!
Do you struggle with loving your spouse, your co-worker, or your own children?
Love means being selfless and cheering for the other person without coveting.
The problem is many of us confuse love with our definition of relationship love.
But God gave us love to experience in such an intense way, in such a selfless form, that only through walking and struggling with our faith can we possibly understand this kind of love.
As Catholics we can experience this love through the Mass. The Mass gives us His sacrifice. Giving us His Love!
What greater gift and example of love could we possibly experience than the Mass?!
What a divine way to experience love in its purist form.
