Daily Prayerful Reflection from our Chaplain, Rev. Michael Neba.

Freedom and Responsibility

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1780-1733]

God created man a rational being, conferring on him the dignity of a person who can initiate and control his own actions. “God willed that man should be ‘left in the hand of his own counsel,’ so that he might of his own accord seek his Creator and freely attain his full and blessed perfection by cleaving to him.”

Man is rational and therefore like God; he is created with free will and is master over his acts.

Freedom is the power, rooted in reason and will, to act or not to act, to do this or that, and so to perform deliberate actions on one’s own responsibility. By free will one shapes one’s own life. Human freedom is a force for growth and maturity in truth and goodness; it attains its perfection when directed toward God, our beatitude.

As long as freedom has not bound itself definitively to its ultimate good which is God, there is the possibility of choosing between good and evil, and thus of growing in perfection or of failing and sinning. This freedom characterizes properly human acts. It is the basis of praise or blame, merit or reproach.

The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to “the slavery of sin.

All owe to each other this duty of respect.

Song and suggested act for the day by Ella Nkemta 

Song: 

My soul is longing for your peace,        
Near to you, my God!        
  
Lord, you know that my heart is not proud,       
And my eyes are not lifted from the earth. 
 
Lofty thoughts have never filled my mind,     
Far beyond my sight all ambitious deeds. 

Suggested Lenten act for the day:

Praise and affirm others even in little things they do...........
