Goopy Liquid Food

I don’t know Father Michael Renninger, Pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Richmond, VA, but I wish I did. Mark Wingfield (I wish I knew him too) wrote an article in Baptist News Global July 23, 2020, that I read recently. It’s entitled “Why we must not look away in the current crisis.”

In the article, Wingfield recounts the story he heard from Fr Renninger, about the time he visited his grandparents on the way home from college. He walked in on a startling scene, and almost turned around and walked out. His grandfather had serious health issues and was being fed liquid food, which at that point in time “…was splattered all over his grandfather, whose face was red.”

An interesting post appeared on Facebook recently that caught our eye. It was a poster that said, “We will never change the world by going to church. We will only change the world by being the church.” (emphasis added) If we knew the author, she/he would be credited here.

We have all known dozens of people in our lives who attend the church/synagogue/mosque of their choice, and profess their deep faith openly… and then their actions don’t match up with
their words. It almost borders on lying. Not telling the truth. It’s like the five year old bully on the playground professing he didn’t mean to hurt his playmate when he roughly pushed the younger, smaller child to the ground. “I’m a good kid who was only playing.”
