THE INGREDIENTS OF GOODNESS.

“Goodness” can be defined as thatwhich moves us in the direction of harmonious coexistence, empathy and solidarity with others. The nature of evil, on the other hand, is to divide: people from people, humanity from the rest of nature.
Remaining silent in the face of injustice is the same as supportingit.
It is the function of evil to divide; to alienate people from each otherand divide one country from another. The universe, this world and our own lives, are the stage for a ceaseless struggle between hatred and compassion, the destructive and constructive aspects of life. In the end, the evil over which we must triumph is theimpulse toward hatred and destruction that resides in us all.
In the fight between justice and evil, taking a neutral stance and being indifferent is the same as siding with evi

FIVE IMPORTANCE OF (LEGAL) SEX TO HEALTH

1. s*x boosts your immune system. “Honey, I have a headache,” may now be the best reason to have s*x! Many physicians are now recognizing how both our s*xual and emotional health affects our entire wellbeing. In other words, how our brain directly impacts our immune system. “We know that people who enjoy a regular, satisfying s*x life (i.e. regular orgasms) are less stressed, less depressed and generally more well physically, mentally and emotionally,” says Wendy Strgar, CEO of Good Clean Love.
2. s*x burns calories. Forget all those punishing diets and instead “do the do”. 30 minutes of s*x burns 90 calories and at an average of three times a week, you’re burning over 2 kilo in a year and having fun while doing it too.
3. s*x relieves pain. Havingan climax has amazing serious results! Oxytocin, anaturally occurring chemical in the body surges during and after climax while working in conjunction with a few other endorphins to makesure you feel no pain. In his book, “How to Treat Arthritis”, rheumatologist Carter V. Multz asserts that s*x can reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with arthritis, headaches and menstrual cramps.
4. s*x decreases aging. Regular s*x releases a large dose of good chemicals into your bloodstream, including testosterone. As we age, our testosterone levels decrease. s*x is a wonderful way to build your reserves back up, helping build new bones and muscles while putting a youthful glow on your face.
5. s*x is great for depression. “The release from climax does much tocalm people”. It also helps with sleep, says Jennifer Bass, a s*x, gender and reproduction expert. Researchers believe that s*x helps the brain produce serotonin which, in turn, prompts new neurons to grow

SUCCESS AND DETERMINATION

While it is important to win, it’s even more important to remain undefeated no matter what happens.
This lifetime will never come again; it is precious and irreplaceable. To live without regret, we must have a concrete purpose, continually setting goals and challenges for ourselves. And we need to keep moving toward those specific targets steadily and tenaciously, one step at a time.
It takes great effort to build something, but it only takes an instant to destroy it.
It is precisely when we have suffered defeat that we can determine to win and open the path to future victory.
Defeat lies not in failing or making mistakes; rather, it lies in giving up on ourselves when we do so.
When you think, “I can’t do anymore. I need a break,” that is the time to challenge yourself to keep going another five minutes. Those who persevere for even an extra five minutes will win in life.
The seeds of firm conviction already contain within them the flowers and fruits of happiness. But if we plant the seeds of self-doubt, naturally, only noxious weeds will sprout

THE COMPONENTS OF A GOOD SHEPHERD: JESUS IS!

In today’s culture the figure of the shepherd is almost unknown and tocall somebody “a sheep” is an offence. On the contrary, in the Bible, sheep farming is well known and has a positive and deep meaning. God is presented as the shepherd of his people.
“The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.”(Ps 23:1) “For he is our God we are the people he shepherds the sheep in his hands” (Ps 95:7).
The future Messiah too is described with the image of a shepherd “Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs carrying them in his bosom, leadingthe ewes with care” (Is 40:11).
This ideal image of a shepherd finds its full realization in Christ. He is the good shepherd who searches for the lost sheep. He takes pity on his people because he sees them “like sheep without a shepherd” (Mt 9:36) He calls his disciples “little flock” (Lk 12:32). Peter calls Jesus “shepherd and guardian of your souls” (1 Pt 2:25) and in Hebrews 13:20 He is called”the great shepherd of the sheep.”
Jesus is the true Shepherd because Heis the one who guides his flock with love, makes sure that it stays united and defends his sheep from danger. The good shepherd knows his sheep one by one and takes careof all of them, counts them when they return to the fold, and when one is missing, leaves all the others to go in search of it.
In calling “sheep” his friends and followers, Christ underlines the essential relation that links them to Him. This relation of salvation isdefined by verbs “they hear and they follow” referred to the believers and “I know” referred to Jesus.
1)The Good Shepherd, passionate and provident
Jesus knows and loves every one of his followers. It should not sounds odd if He calls us sheep because he allowed for himself to be called”lamb” so that his duty to “take away the sins of the world” would become our mission, to take his forgiveness to all people.
In today’s gospel He speaks about usas his flock and about him as the good shepherd who gives his life for his sheep… He never relinquisheshis sheep and loves them to the point of giving his life for them. Moved by his passion for us, He didn’t hesitate to face the passion of the Cross. He is the good shepherd in love with life so that we can have eternal life. It is natural to wonder why we, the luckyflock, would abandon this Way and depart on roads leading to ravines… He, the infinitely good, divine, merciful and loyal shepherd, searches us out, calls us by name and when He finds us, puts us on hisshoulders and leads us to the eternal pasture of heaven.( 1 Pt 2:25)
We are in the hands of the Good Shepherd, who leads us one by one and introduces us into real life, in the life of friends, as the Gospel oftoday’s Ambrosian liturgy reminds us. However it is not enough that we declare ourselves ‘friends’ of Christ. We must express our true friendship with Jesus in the way wefollow him, with goodness of heart, humility, clemency and mercy.
To follow Jesus is to pledge our willingness and walk behind the One of whom we have heard and loved, the Word of Life. Behind Himour steps don’t waver. He will carry us to the green pasture. Even if we walk through a valley of shadows we do not fear because He is with us. (Ps 23)
To follow it is necessary to listen engaging the mind and heart. The real listening is obedience (the etymology of to obey is ob-audire = to be listening) in the same way the Apostles did and became fishers of men and shepherds of souls. True obedience is to listen andput in practice Christ’s word of love. Obedience must be lived not only by doing things, but also with the desire to learn from Him the pattern of our own life, following the truth of love and letting us be guided by the love of a good Shepherd, a true Friend.
2)Vocation: “space” of freedom.
If the verbs “to hear” and ” to follow” used in today’s Roman gospel are verbs that indicate a deep dialogue and a communion of life not only of thoughts, the verb”to know” lays the foundations of the vocation of the Apostles and ofour vocation as well. This vocation is called to a relationship of communion between Jesus and his disciples and involves the entire person, his thoughts, love and behavior. This vocation is a call to receive life (“I’m giving them eternal life”) and to share it with all humanity.
If as Jesus says, two are the main facts that characterize his sheep, that is, to hear and to follow (to hear his voice and to follow his way), to be aware that Christ knows and loves us means that we must not keep this gift for ourselves. With this knowledge of Christ we are called to be the salt and light for the world. It is true that our world continuously changes, but it is not necessary to race looking for ideas and new projects. God’s voice has already echoed and the direction of his path has been drawn. Loyalty of memory has been demanded and the brilliance of the invention of new pastoral programs.
He is a friend who knows us and makes us understand that the heart is committed. We know in truth only what we love. It is a love which goes behind evidence. It is a knowledge that comes from the inside, from deep down. It is to know Life and the Truth following the Way. It is the knowledge of Love that makes us free.
Jesus has many times affirmed that his freedom is not to take distance from the Father, but to doHis will. Freedom and obedience to the Father (which is always obedience to the donation of one self) coincide. The true space of freedom is the love to which Christ calls us. Vocation is a gift to be welcomed with amazement. The wonder we experience at the gift God has made to us in Christ gives new impulse to our lives and commits us to becoming witnesses of his love. We become witnesses when, through our actions, words and way of being, Another makes himself present. Witness could be described as the means by which the truth of God’s love comes to men and women in history, inviting them to accept freely this radical newness. Through witness, God lays himself open, one might say, to the risk of human freedom
