“For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live” (Rom 8: 13).
St. Paul often uses these opposites: in the spirit—in the flesh. The first calls us to life, to eternity, to everlasting communion with God—the second calls us to the world, to life from my perspective and focused on my pleasure. His conclusion is so sharp: “you will live”—“you will die”.
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed the man who seeks refuge in him” (Communion Antiphon).
