Thought of the Day October 17, 2022 Proper perspective

By 1:08 PM

 Today, we celebrate the Feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr. He had a great perspective on life. He said: "Only on my arrival there (heaven) can I be fully a human being." God created us out of love to be with him forever in glory. In this life we seek to become fully who we are meant to be. But it is only if we live and die in Christ, will we will reach our full potential. St. Paul reminds us of a truth that we need to keep before us as we journey in this life. "Our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we also await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will change our lowly body to conform with his glorified Body." Jesus also put it in perspective when he said: "What good is it to gain the whole world but lose your soul." Jesus , Paul and Ignatius had the right perspective. Is this our perspective as well.?
