This is a blog that I post to several times a week although not necessarily daily. These reflections are triggered by the scripture found in the lectionary used by many Christian denominations. While I am part of the Catholic tradition, these posts are not --or rarely--sectarian. I try to put myself in the space of a of Jesus Christ and listen to words that come to me as I read and pray the scriptures. Each post also includes a photograph. These rarely have any connection to the content of the post but are simply pleasing images that I capture as I make my pilgrimage through life.

This wine is good enough.

39 "And no one, after drinking old wine wishes for new; for he says, ‘The old is good enough.'" Luke 5

I have heard or read the saying of Jesus about new wine and old wineskins numerous times in my life. However I often fail to focus on this final sentence. No matter how fulfilling and engaging newer levels of spiritual life might be, my natural inclination is to be satisfied with where I am. Life including spiritual life is a process, not some state of being. If I am not progressing, changing, evolving, I am settling for less than the fullness of life promised by Jesus.
