Living transparently How many of us can truly say that our lives are an open book? “Transparency” is a bit of a buzz word in the media these days. With every scandal that hits the headlines uncovering the corrupt practices of some public figure or another, our trust is shaken. When it is a person from whom we would have expected better, or whose actions have hurt countless others, we are left to ponder the whys and hows of it all-How could they live a double life for so long? Why did they feel the need? And how on earth did they think they could get away with it?But when we think about it, how many of us are living truly transparent lives? Do our outside selves always match our inner selves? We may be harbouring grudges or nasty thoughts about family members, friends, colleagues or acquaintances. Maybe we are cheating or being dishonest in some small way, or cutting corners in our work. It is likely that we have built up some habits or practices that we would rather no one knew about.In our second reading today, Paul talks about the “things we prefer to do under the cover of dark”, and urges us to “arm ourselves and appear in the light”. As we enter into Advent, it is the ideal time to examine our own lives-to come out into the light. Triona Doherty
