Mind Your Business

There is an interchange between Jesus and St. Peter that occurs in the gospel reading for Mass a couple days ago. It is after the resurrection of Christ, and St. Peter asks about St. John. Jesus makes an odd comment about St. John, and then gives a gentle admonition to St. Peter. At the end of it, Our Lord says, "what is that to you? Follow me!" In other words, do not get caught up in trying to figure out someone one else's duty or responsibility; you are responsible for your own calling. In other words, "mind your own business". Many people today do not want to hear that. They like spending their time fretting about others, and trying to make sure that everyone else is doing what they are supposed to be doing, but all while they are neglecting doing their own personal duty. Help others where you can, pray for them always, and maintain good fellowship with all. Yet, never forget, their calling is theirs, not yours; your own calling is what you are eternally accountable for.
