“In fact, all the world came to Joseph to obtain rations of grain, for famine had gripped the whole world.” —Genesis 41:57
In Joseph’s time, there was a worldwide physical famine. Amos prophesied a spiritual famine: “Yes, days are coming, says the Lord God, when I will send famine upon the land: not a famine of bread, or thirst for water, but for hearing the word of the Lord” (Am 8:11). Today we have worse famines. While hundreds of millions starve to death physically, Chinese Communists and Muslim-dominated countries deny well over two billion people free access to the spiritual food of Christian community, the Bible, and the Sacraments. Even worse than this, hundreds of millions of Christians have a third famine and are spiritually anorexic. They have imposed spiritual starvation on themselves. This makes large sectors of the Church so weak that it becomes a doormat for the devil and lets him “get away with murder” as he destroys people through the other kinds of starvation (see Jn 8:44).
Fr. Mike Schmitz talks about God’s plan for your life and how to find it.
“Eat this scroll, then go, speak to the house of Israel.” —Ezekiel 3:1
Rebellion against the Lord entails not only doing evil but also refusing to totally consume and be consumed by His callings (Ez 2:8). We must eat the scroll of God’s plan for our lives. We must internalize it, digest it, and make it part of ourselves. As we consume God’s callings, we are consumed by God (see Heb 12:29). When we internalize God’s plan, God lives in us and we in Him (see Jn 17:23). We lose our lives (Lk 9:24), and it is no longer we who live but Christ Who lives within us (Gal 2:20). Then, paradoxically, as we lose our lives, we find our lives in Christ (Lk 9:24).
