    The first reading refers to sins like scarlet and crimson red. When these two colors are contrasted with white, like snow or wool, they stand out most dramatically. Most people have heard of Sodom and Gomorrah in Old Testament. While the book of Genesis describes the sins of the two cities to have been sexual in nature, Ezekiel suggests it was more than that. And if we read carefully the account in Genesis where Abraham is asking how few people it would take for God to save the city, and we learn that for the sake of ten righteous people God would save the cities, it had gotten pretty bad there indeed.

    If you had a chance to describe our society in moral terms, how would you do it? What words would you choose? What behaviors would you identify? How is it you would relate the current state of society to the Lord God? And what pronoun would you use? Would you talk about they or we? Would you choose to identify with the sinful parts of society as things you yourself are also a part of, or would you point fingers at others?

    I find the 8th chapter of Saint Paul’s letter to the Romans to be one of my favorites. So much of this chapter is a consoling reminder that in all of the chaos of our lives, God loves us, has a plan, and cannot be separated from us. During some difficult times in my life, I have found this chapter to have helped me through tough things a lot.

    The first reading today is a challenge. Why would God command Abraham to sacrifice his son? Is there a bigger message at stake here? What does this have to do with Lent? And what are we to make of all this? While the first reading certainly presents a challenge, understood in the proper context it can also help us to see how the wisdom of God can lead us to eternal life.

    Sometimes I am tempted to do the bare minimum. I look to see just how little I can do and still be able to count something as having been done. As a child, there was the question about how late (or how early) one could leave Mass and still be able to say it counted that you had attended Mass. Was it by the opening prayer? The first reading? The gospel? (We always concluded the gospel was the absolute latest we could arrive.)
