The first reading today from the Acts of the Apostles describes an almost unbelievable world. People sharing, prayer, and being of one mind. Sounds like a great world in which to live. It is what we can do when we turn our lives over to Jesus and live in harmony with his will. The resurrection of Jesus changes everything. While the world today, as it was then, is still filled with all kinds of evils, now, like then, things can still be amazing when we love like God loves.
