September 13th Readings Reflection: Memorial of Saint John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
This whole reflection spoke to me. However, the comment by St John C. and your comment on his about mourning for sins really spoke to me especially mourning for the sins of others. I do pray for others and their sins, but I rarely mourn for these folks. Usually I am disgusted or angry or both at them, and I pray for them in anger and contempt. That prayer doesn't work well. So lately I have asked to to pray in love seeking their good. I think that is true mourning, seeking "the good of the other" as Bishop Barron is fond of saying!
