Discipline is an important element in the call of Christ to us to be Catholic men of God. Jesus wants us to receive the greatest prize of all – eternal life. And so he warns us not to fall into the trap that the people of Noah’s time did. They did all the things we do today: eating, drinking, buying, selling, and getting married. There’s nothing wrong with any of these activities, of course. But the problem was that in all their busyness, there was little or no room for God.
