THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
After the Second World War, a Greek man named Alexander Papaderous
founded an Institute of Peace and Understanding on the island of Crete,
as a response to the atrocities that had taken place there during the
war. One day, while taking questions at the end of a lecture, someone
asked him: "What is the meaning of life?" In response Papaderous took a
small mirror out of his wallet, and said: "I am a fragment of a mirror
whose whole design and shape I do not know.
Nevertheless, with what I have I can reflect light into the dark
places of this world—into the black places in the hearts of men and
women—and change some things in some people. Perhaps others may see and
do likewise. This is what I’m about. This is the meaning of my life."
Papaderous was a person of great humility, aware of how small and
seemingly insignificant each one of us is, but full of faith that we can
still do great things. Like the tax collector in the parable we hear
today, he was aware of his unworthiness, but open to light and hope. In
today’s Gospel we are invited to put ourselves in the shoes of the
Pharisee, who regarded himself as superior to others, and the tax
collector, who throws himself on the mercy of God. Which of them sees
the bigger picture?
