Baptized but still living like the pagans...

"Dear friends, at the close of today's Gospel,the Lord calls us to see how, in reality, we continue to live as Pagans: how, through reciprocity, we invite only those who will exchange the invitation; how we give only to those who will give back to us. Yet God's way is different: we experience it in the Holy Eucharist. He invites us to his table, that before him we are lame, blind and deaf; he calls us even though we have nothing to give him. [...]likewise be touched by feeling the fault of distancing ourselves so little from the practice of the Pagans, of so little living this newness, this way of God."
