Football Scoops, Worry, Simony Refresher, Conversion of St. Paul the Apostle 1.21.20

  • San Diego Charger (Catholic) Phillip Rivers moving to Florida; Green Bay Packer, Arron Rodgers comments on God. What is hell?
  • Worry is central to human existence. How does scripture invite us to turn away from worry? God is with us in moments of strife and worry.
  • Strong words from Pope Francis today: admonishing clergy to avoid simony (selling spirituality). Using a position of “rank” for upward mobility or recognition.
  • Saul, the persecutor of the Christians: doesn’t look like a great candidate to lead the Church. The Lord doesn’t judge based on outward appearance or sinfulness; the Lord looks at the heart.
