Fr Jim Cogley
No matter what you might think when you are little, life is not all about you. Your ego may try to convince you that you are the center of the universe, but your truest self
knows that is false. The world is filled with other people. You are only one of them. You are unique, but you are not the center of the world. Live out an understanding of that truth by focusing on others. Help those in need in your community and reach out to those who are in pain, excluded, or disabled. A friendly face and helping hand can work miracles in the life of someone who is struggling. Do not forget those closest to you either. Some people are wonderful at reaching out to complete strangers but flounder when they are confronted with loved ones in pain. Show compassion, love and understanding to all in need regardless of whether they are close friends or complete strangers.
