Reverence and Respect
Thomas Merton tells us:
Advertising treats all products with reverence and the seriousness due to sacraments.
Likewise, sometimes we church people treat church rituals, sacraments, and sacramentals with more reverence and seriousness than with which we treat people.
We need to remember the People of God are also Sacrament.
Let us treat one another with reverence and respect.
