Wednesday of the 2nd week in Ordinary Time, 20th January 2016
“Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Complete my joy by being of the same mind. Oneness. That’s what drives us as followers of Christ and as Catholics: having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Selflessness. Putting others before us, loving not for our selfish desires and pleasures but loving genuinely, having a love that calls us to serve our neighbours. Humility. That which makes us have the mind of our Saviour, that which makes us submissive to Christ will, the humility that makes us empty ourselves out for those around us, the humility that springs forth obedience, that in being humble we will be exalted one day.
Oneness, Selflessness, Humility. Our Christian keywords for today. May we be given the grace not to just make them keywords in our lives but keys to opening the doors of salvation.
