Revelation: Chocolate is not always used in sacred or positive fashions.
Sisters and Brothers, we have seen them at our own doors and in our offices, they may be children from our neighborhoods or families or they may be strangers who ring our doorbells. Sad but true, some people use our sacraments as a cover for their illegal behavior.
This is a great example of how our moderation, conscious use of this substance can be an aid in helping us see through con artists whatever their age or supposed affiliation. We are not interesting in consuming any chocolate for mere momentary pleasure. No, we are looking for worthy chocolates that help us experience a closer connection to the divine.
Donate please to charities and schools that you are drawn to for your own reason but control that desire for chocolate and think thoroughly before simply buying anything of cocoa origin.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
