Read this story, or at least look at the photos and captions, and let the spirit of it sink into you. https://www.nj.com/news/2021/09/the-great-boat-lift-of-911.html
As you do, ask yourself how different this was from the rescue mission that Jesus left with the Church.
And ask if we are willing to rescue the lost and care for the injured in the same selfless spirit as these mariners. And if not, why not?
What will it take to make us a united, selfless armada who will charge into the choking and blinding smoke, and dirty our beautiful boats with those fleeing the havoc of our world?
Or are we too busy with our cruises and dinner parties, or too taken up with polishing our boats and adding the latest navigation, fish-finding or buffet serving equipment, to be bothered?
There’s plenty of boats. Jesus is the Captain, where are the deck hands – – or are we all tourists?
