To bring to completion for you the word of God

July 17, 2016 7:15 am

“Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his body, which is the church, of which I am a minister in accordance with God’s stewardship given to me to bring to completion for you the word of God, the mystery hidden from ages and from generations past.” (COL 1: 24-26) 

The mission of St. Paul and the other Apostles— “to bring to completion the word of God”—now needs our service. With His word we can understand ourselves, our vocations, our assignments and our future. The most basic duty is to “keep the word with a generous heart,” and with God’s help, we will be able to “bring a harvest through perseverance.”

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and bring a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
