St. Paul speaks to the people of Corinth, desiring that they be free from anxiety. As we continue to face the challenges of COVID-19 may we discern what is in our control to change and pray for the Lord's grace to face what comes our way.

Jesus offers two parables which show how the Kingdom of God expands through steady growth from a tiny beginning. May this process encourage us to foster our faith - no matter how small - as we invite the Lord to dwell in our hearts.

Two of St. Paul's companions, Timothy and Titus, are remembered today for their witness to Christ as they carried out the Psalm response to "proclaim God's marvelous deeds to all the nations." May we follow their example today!

The conversion of St. Paul inspires us to offer our lives - no matter what mistakes we have made in the past - as we dedicate our words and actions to the proclamation of the Good News.

Christ commands us to "Repent, and believe in the Gospel." This exhortation is not a one-time event; rather, it is an ongoing process that we reaffirm every day.

The response from Psalm 85 offers a rich spiritual insight. As we seek intellectual truth with conviction we do so with a kindness toward one another that is honest and sincere. When both are present in our lives the glory of God shines out.

Jesus, our great high priest, bridges the gap between Heaven and earth through his divinity and humanity. As the Son of God he has the power to make a sacrifice for the salvation of the world; as the Son of Mary he meets us in our human weakness and struggle. May we turn to our Savior for the strength we need!

During the call of Levi - who leaves his post and follows Jesus - we hear the encouraging words of the Lord, who "did not come to call the righteous but sinners." May we recognize our need for ongoing conversion as we turn away from sin and follow Christ.

John the Baptist reveals a humility and depth of knowledge as he recognizes how the ministry of Jesus must grow. "He must increase; I must decrease." May these words apply to each one of us as we welcome Christ as King of our hearts.

The desire of Jesus to make clean the leper in the Gospel of Luke reveals the Lord's desire to cleanse each one of us: body, mind, heart and soul.

Jan 7, 2021

In this third part of the reflection on love from the First Letter of John, we see how our love for others reflects the love that flows from the heart of God. When we love one another we are acting on the Lord's commandment and showing the world the face of Christ.
