Privacy Rights

We all like our privacy. There is a fortress of privacy within all of us which is impregnable, our own private possession. It is difficult to venture out of the fortress because we are forced to face new experiences and problems. Our inner selves are considered our own for us to invite whom we wish and whom we love….

This "leave me alone" attitude of contemporary life is dangerous because it contradicts the essential nature of the Christian as a man for others. When we begin to care about people, we sacrifice a private life, the fortress is impregnated, and we no longer belong only to ourselves. Beware—that will cost. But we are not our own. We have been bought with a price. We belong to God.

When is the last time you allowed your privacy to be invaded to care for at least one other person?
