Thought of the Day October 21, 2016

By 10:14 AM

St. Paul says: "I, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, and magnanimity." Here is our challenge today. We are called to be disciples of the Lord, seeking holiness of life and witnessing to others by our life and actions. And the virtues we should strive to exercise today are humility, gentleness and magnanimity. To do all things with humility and not arrogance, knowing and living in the truth, without forcing it on others. To be gentle and respectful in our speech towards others.  To open our hearts to others as God opens his heart to us, with all our faults and shortcomings. Jesus opened his heart to the woman caught in adultery, not condemning her but not condoning her lifestyle, challenging her to turn away from sin. What will all this achieve? Peace in our hearts and in our relations with God and others. The fruit of this peace with be the authentic unity God desires.
