“THE CREATION ITSELF WILL BE SET FREE FROM ITS BONDAGE” (Rom 8:21)

⏰Tuesday of the Thirtieth Week of Ordinary Time 1 (31 October 2017)

????Rom 8:18-25; Ps 126:1-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6 (R.v.3a); Luke 13:18-21

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “Hope is a supernatural gift of God, by which we firmly trust that God will give us eternal life and all means necessary to obtain it, if we do what he requires of us.”

In our world today which is full of troubles and uncertainties, St. Paul reminds us, through his Letter to the Romans (Rom 8:18-25), of what the prophet Isaiah said in Isa 2:2, “It shall come to pass in the latter days…”

Whatever troubles you might be passing through now is not the end result of your life; God is preparing something great for you. Amen.

However, through the twin-parables of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast (cf. Luke 13:18-21), Jesus encourages us to embrace the spirit of patience and perseverance. The mustard seed is a very tiny seed that has the potentiality of being a very big shrub, but it needs the faith and patience of the planter to actualize that potentiality.

Do you have faith that God can save you? Are you patient enough to wait for him? Remember that those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength always (cf. Isa 40:31) and they are like Mount Zion that cannot be shaken but stands forever (Ps 125:1).

May God protect and save us from all evils. May he also give us the grace to persevere in the face of these evils, and emerge victoriously from them in the end. Amen

Have a grace-filled and miraculous day ahead. Peace be with you.
