Father Pat's Corner Markings A true story from Tanzania: Many years ago, tow brothers prepared to leave their village to make their fortune in a distant country. Their father gave them his blessing, with this advice: "On your way put marks on the trees lest you get lost." The two brothers set off. The first brother entered the forest and, as he made his way, cut down some of the trees and marked others with deep gashes. He did this the whole length of his journey. The second brother took a different route. Each evening as he came to a house, he would stop and knock on the door. He would be invited in and made friends with the family. He would help with the work and contribute to the family table. Then he would continue on his way, making friends all along his journey. Finally the two brothers returned home. Their father welcomed them warmly. He then asked his sons to show him the marks they had made on their journey. The first son showed his father the trees he had cut down and marked. Father and son traveled a long way before returning home hungry and exhausted. The next day the father set out with the second son. Retracing his route, the son returned to the homes he had visited and both son and father were welcomed warmly with good food and drink and comfortable places to sleep. When they returned home, the father summoned the two sons. "Dear sons, I have seen the work you have done. The time has come for me to entrust our family's fortune to one of you." To the first son, he said: "I told you to put marks on trees as you traveled. You have cut down many trees and destroyed many others. Where is the profit in all these felled trees?" But he praised the second son: "You left important marks on your journey. You made friendships and established relationships of trust and generosity. These will serve you well." The father then ordered a great feast and invested the second son as his principal heir and patriarch of the family. In his journey, the second brother has made the greater fortune, "marking" his way with friendships he had forged through respect and kindness. His was the way of discipleship marked by Jesus, the Christ who lives and dies with us and in us: he dies in our hatreds and prejudices but lives in our generosity and compassion, in our sufferings and sorrows, in our attempts to live the Gospel he taught us. <><><>

Peace begins in the heart of each individual, it is in our hands, in our hearts, in our minds to make peace happen, with the grace of a loving God to support us

As we commemorate this September 11th, let us remember the words of St. Francis of Assisi:

Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon Where there is doubt, faith, Where there is despair, hope, Where there is darkness, light, Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, not so much to be understood as to understand, not so much to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we awake to eternal life. <><><><>
