Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Gustav Moreau: St. Martin
Private Collection, 1882

Monday of the Eleventh week in Ordinary Time:  The Summons to Holier Lives

First Reading: Second Corinthians 6:1-10
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 98:1, 2-3, 3-4
Gospel: Matthew 5:38-42


If anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well (NRSV, Mt 5:40).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, you call us through the Word, now made flesh in our Lord Jesus, to make you and your coming kingdom the center and focus of everything that we are and do. You call us to forget ourselves and give all in service of our sisters and brothers.

We struggle in every age to find patterns of activity to govern our lives in justice. Help us to realize that within this world there is nothing that exhausts your truth and goodness and that we are constantly called to move beyond even our highest ideals and motivations to find new forms of moral behavior which in turn will also need to be surpassed.

Father, you give us life in the Spirit in the moment and call us always to grow in that divine life. May your gift never be in vain but manifest itself in us in holier lives.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
