If you want to know what sort of lifestyle pleases the Lord, the answer is very simple — a life of integrity and truth. Pope John Paul II was constantly calling us back to such a lifestyle and Benedict XVI has not let up on this call. The history of Judaism and Christianity is full of examples of the faithful few, the men and women of integrity, being sources of renewal and faithfulness in the life of our traditions. Are you a part of this solution or a part of the problem?
5 Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up a righteous shoot to David; as king he shall reign and govern wisely, he shall do what is just and right in the land. 6 In his days Judah shall be saved, Israel shall dwell in security. This is the name they give him, “The LORD our justice.” 7 Therefore, the days will come, says the LORD, when they shall no longer say, “As the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites out of the land of Egypt”; 8 but rather, “As the LORD lives, who brought the descendants of the house of Israel up from the land of the north” — and from all the lands to which I banished them; they shall again live on their own land.
