The other day when I was reading the newspaper, I decided to take a look at some of the comics. Charlie Brown was always one of my favorite.
The comic strip I looked at showed Charlie Brown warning Snoopy not to go near Lucy's house. She's having a 'Crab-In' today, said Charlie Brown.
Instead of listening to the warning, Snoopy went right to Lucy's house and knocked on the door. When the unhappy Lucy opened the door, Snoopy gave her a great big kiss. Then he walked away saying to himself, "That's how you break up a 'Crab-In.'"
Jesus makes the same point in today's gospel. He talks to us about giving of ourselves and reaching out for others. The surest way to put happiness in someone's life is to put love into it.
Sincerely in Christ,
