In the spirit of St. Augustine, who urged his followers to search for God together, consider this reflection on Sunday's Gospel. Both the sheep and the goats are unaware of their actions that the King is describing, “Lord, when did we see you…?” For the sheep, this suggests a level of humility. Caring for others was so tied to their identity, that they were naturally inclined to serve. For the goats, this suggests a lack of desire. If they possessed the same natural desire to serve as the sheep, they wouldn’t have received their verdict. This leads me to believe that our desire to obey and please God is demonstrated through our service towards others. I think about the motives in which I live my life; am I living for myself? Or am I living a life that is devoted to serving God through the least of these?

Get involved in action that seeks to bring about peace and justice in the world, learn about Catholic Social Teaching, and social justice advocacy. Campus Ministry sponsors Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week and CRS Ambassadors Program Program as a means to educate the Villanova community on current local and global issues.

In addition, Campus Ministry works in collaboration with Villanova’s Center for Peace & Justice Education, which offers an academic interdisciplinary program on topics of world peace and social justice as well as sponsors student groups affiliated with specific issues of justice.
