Today I’d like to reflect on this beautiful letter to Paul, Timothy and “… to all the holy ones in Jesus Christ who are in Philippi…”
I can imagine this letter being written to us…today…wherever we find ourselves. It is a message to all of us who are trying to live faithful lives in response to the Gospel message.
One Sunday -- long ago when I was attending college -- I remember going to the Sunday Mass and the priest began his homily: “Congratulations to each of you. You have made it through another week….” It was a note of encouragement to keep going. That sermon helped me a lot.
That is the same message we are getting this morning in the first reading:
This is the message you and I need today:
And finally, we all pray that our love may increase more and more and that we can gain true knowledge and wisdom to know what is of “value” for our Gospel-lives.
May you have a blessed day. Be encouraged to keep going even though your mind, body, and spirit may be very tired; be confident that others are with you on this great journey; be enlightened to know that you are here for His reason…and that He will be with you always … even unto the end of time.
