Saturday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time
June 15, 2019
Today, in Mercy, we are reminded of two fundamentals of our spiritual life.
- In Christ, we are a New Creation. (2 Cor.5:17)
- We are called to live in the fullness of that Truth (Mt.5:37)
If we could only believe and act from that power how our lives might be transformed!
Often, we let the relentless passing of time convince us each day that, rather than “new”, we are an older creation. Some of us tend to meet the cycles of life as challenges rather than opportunities. We use old, comfortable solutions that don’t quite meet the test. We get stuck, because life can be hard work!
But what if we realized that, every morning, God is imagining us into new possibility? That together with God, we have another day to become a sign of the Spirit in the world?
What if we consciously chose to meet any dispiriting situation with the attitude Jesus might take toward it? What if we lived life as an unfolding, glorious mystery rather than a problem?
What if we lived fully in the Truth that we are God’s beloved and, with God, capable of eternal life?
Today’s scriptures invite us to consider these questions with openness and faith.
