Everyone who acknowledges me before others

July 11, 2020 4:00 am

“Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.” (MT 10: 32-34)

Acknowledging is not only admitting or accepting Our Lord’s reality, but also recognizing His importance in our lives. When we are in love with our spouses we demonstrate our love in many ways: wearing the wedding ring, receiving his or her calls immediately, the way in which we speak about our spouses, or rejecting stupid jokes devaluing married life. Our Lord wants to be part of our lives, not a guest (even a very special guest).

“If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of God rests upon you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
