“SET YOUR MINDS ON THINGS THAT ARE ABOVE” (Col 3:2)

⏰Wednesday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 1 (13 Sept. 2017 – Memorial of St. John Chrysosto) ????Col 3:1-11; Ps 145:2-3, 10-11, 12-13ab (R.v.9a); Luke 6:20-26 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you. Amen. Being a Christian means being immersed into the identity of Christ in such a way that it is no longer the person who lives but Christ living in him (cf. Col 3:3-4; Gal 2:20-21). We must therefore aim to be where Christ is also. We cannot do that unless we...

“HOW GOOD IS THE LORD TO ALL” (Ps 145:9)

⏰Tuesday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 1 (12 Sept. 2017) ????Col 2:6-15; Ps 145:1b-2, 8-9, 10-11 (R.v.9); Luke 6:12-19 Yesterday, we talked about retracing our steps from the materialistic tendencies that have bedeviled our world. St. Paul tells us to live above boards without doubts. “As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving” (Col 2:6). Such a decision would most often come with troubles. The Psalmist says in Psalm 34:19, “Many are the troubles of the...

“I REJOICE IN MY SUFFERINGS FOR YOUR SAKE” (Col 1:24)

⏰Monday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 1 (11 Sept. 2017) ????Col 1:24 – 2:3; Ps 62:6-7, 9 (R.v.8a); Luke 6:6-11 As I listened to Paul in Col 1:24 – 2:3, I began to reflect again on my response to God’s invitation to be his disciple and a minister among the so many disciples. Am I a servant-leader after the mind of Christ or am I a comfort-seeker? Jesus said in Matt 16:24, “If anyone wants to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.” This reflected well in early missionaries who evangelized...
