Readings for today’s Mass
The balloon man was busy in attracting his little customers, when he felt someone pulling his shirt. He turned around and saw a little dark tribal boy asking him, "If you release a black balloon, would that also fly high?"
For a moment the balloon man was taken aback -- why is this little boy asking such a question? His eyes fell on the dark skin of the body, and in a flicker of a moment, the balloon man realized the matter.
With a lot of affection, he moved his hand on the head of the little boy and gently replied, "Son, it is not the color of the balloon, it is what's inside it that make it go up."
In the eyes of God, it makes no difference if we are Asian, African, Caucasian, whether we are hobbled by a crippling condition or a star athlete, rich or poor. What matters is not the color of our skin, but the quality of our character. And, the people say, "Amen! Alleluia!"
