Do Unto Others

Posted on

Pope Francis paid a visit to the U.S. this week.   He literally made a stop in my neighborhood of Brookland  DC in fact I can see the Basillica from my house and yes I hear the bells on the hour..  Truth be told the vibe in my neighborhood aka “Little Rome,” is always pretty positive but it took on an added “feel good” air during his visit.  One thing the Pope  quoted the Bible Luke 6:31  to a joint session of Congress  “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.”   Interesting in a culture where it’s usually do unto others before they Do unto you.  Unfortunately in Congress, as well as other parts of the city the latter creed seems to persist, the real question is why.   All the back-stabbing, undermining and belittling – why?  Does it really mean success for those who engage in small acts of emotional terrorism?  I like to believe the answer is NO.  I’m with Pope Francis on this one. Ultimately a higher power decides.
