Compete well for the faith

September 22, 2017 6:00 am

“But you, man of God, avoid all this. Instead, pursue righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. Compete well for the faith. Lay hold of eternal life, to which you were called when you made the noble confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1 TM 6: 11-12) 

St. Paul reminds us of how important our faith is. Possessing objects and “love for money” can’t satisfy our hearts; only relationships with other persons, love of God and “eternal life, to which we are called,” are the right answers to our dignity and our identity—persons created with love by God. 

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
