Have you ever ignored your “gut feelings”, and then found out later that you should have listened to them ? The gut and the brain are linked, through the enteric nervous system.
I should have listened to my intuition, my gut feelings, when Fr. Jose sometimes based his sermons on how much he enjoyed watching the T. V. program, “Dancing With the Stars” !
Something was definitely wrong here. I should have spoken up immediately. Should the clergy be fascinated with such a program ? I looked around at my fellow parishioners, but they were in their usual half – asleep position. So I said nothing, and a few years later, disaster resulted. I have learned to rely much more on my gut feelings. Jesus tells us to sit up, stand up, and speak up ! Jesus demonstrated an assertive way of speaking and acting. Let us follow our Lord’s example.
