FRIDAY OF THE TWENTY-SEVENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME OCTOBER 9, 2020



MASS READINGS:


A reading from the Letter of St Paul to the Galations 3:7-14


Brothers and sisters: Realize that it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham. Scripture, which saw in advance that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, foretold the good news to Abraham, saying, Through you shall all the nations be blessed. Consequently, those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham who had faith. For all who depend on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, Cursed be everyone who does not persevere in doing all the things written in the book of the law. And that no one is justified before God by the law is clear, for the one who is righteous by faith will live. But the law does not depend on faith; rather, the one who does these things will live by them. Christ ransomed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written, Cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree, that the blessing of Abraham might be extended to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.


REFLECTION:


All we do through and for PAPA (Priest Always ~ Prayer Apostolate) has one end: Holiness. The Holy Spirit has guided us during the 2020 PAPA Annual Retreat and has worked to sanctify us. Our goal is to be made into other christs. And we pray for the same end for priests: their Holiness in continuing their priestly dignity and ministry.


It is time now to stop and rest on the chest of Christ, listening to His heartbeat and synchronizing ours with His. In time this encounter with God will reveal a little of Him and we can allow the Holy Spirit to set us on fire. It is all up to God whether our encounter was a whisper, a breeze, a roaring wind or even a hurricane. We know God has lifted a little of His veil to allow us to know more of Him. Hopefully now or with time we will be able to spread the good news of PAPA, preaching through our lives.


May we receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.


God Bless You
