1 Corinthians 11:23-26: The Institution of the Holy Eucharist

Advertisements

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is foryou. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the chalice, after supper, saying, “This chalice is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the chalice, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Redemptoris Custos: Saint Joseph Became a Unique Guardian of the Mystery Hidden for Ages in God

Advertisements

“Joseph did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife” (cf. Mt 1 :24). While it is true that Joseph did not respond to the angel’s “announcement” in the same way as Mary, he “did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife.” What he did is the clearest “obedience of faith” (cf. Rom 1:5; 16:26; 2 Cor 10:5-6). Therefore he became a unique guardian of the mystery “hidden for ages in God” (Eph 3:9), as did Mary, in that decisive moment which St. Paul calls “the fullness of time,” when “God sent forth his Son, born of woman…to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons” (Gal 4:4-5).

Saint Gregory of Nazianzen: There Should Be No Delay Between Your Intention and Your Good Deed

Advertisements

Not even night should interrupt you in your duty of mercy. Do not say: Come back and I will give you something tomorrow. There should be no delay between your intention and your good deed. Generosity is the one thing that cannot admit of delay. Share your bread with the hungry, and bring the needy and the homeless into your house, with a joyful and eager heart.

From a sermon by Saint Gregory of Nazianzen, bishop

Father Al: Prayer is the Oxygen of Our Soul

Advertisements

Prayer is the raising up of one’s mind and heart to God. It is a loving conversation with God. It is fundamental to spiritual life. It is the oxygen of our soul. If the body lacks oxygen, it becomes weak, dizzy, and eventually it dies. And so it is, if the soul does not pray, it becomes weak, dizzy, exhausted, and eventually it dies.

1 Corinthians 1:22-25: Christ is the Power and the Wisdom of God

Advertisements

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
