alienated and hostile in mind

September 7, 2019 6:00 am

“You once were alienated and hostile in mind because of evil deeds; God has now reconciled you in the fleshly Body of Christ through his death, to present you holy, without blemish, and irreproachable before him…” (COL 1: 21-22)

An important battle for our good marriages takes place in our minds. Our “mistaken patterns of interpretation in our inner dialogue” can destroy our relationships because “of evil deeds.” It is good to remember that our “evil deeds” come from our “alienated and hostile minds.” Change the way in which you think about your spouse and you will change your relationship. Heal your inner dialogue and you will heal your family. 

“I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
