Readings & Reflections: Tuesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time & St. Giles Mary of St. Joseph, February 13,2018
When Jesus warns his disciples against the leaven of the Pharisees, they take his words literally. God “willed to give us birth by the word of truth.” We “understand and comprehend” that Word as we pay attention to the way it takes flesh in our lives, changing things and making the impossible possible.
Heavenly Father, We are mere human beings who struggle in faith, hope and love. We need to grow in our understanding of and, more importantly, in our intimate relationship and union with Christ. Lord enable us to open ourselves to the vastness of your love for us in Jesus. Give us the faith that remains constant as we journey back to our true home with You.
