May I see Christ in all things and all things in Christ.
Writing to Timothy, Paul says anyone living the Way of Christ is certain to be persecuted.
But he advises the faithful to keep the faith and hold fast to what they know to be true.
Let us ponder these words in the light of today’s world.
We certainly have evidence of wrongdoing in many places today.
Yet we also see frequent examples of courage and compassion.
Many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere the world is full of heroism.
These words from the Desiderata remind us that the Spirit is alive in our world, that Christ’s plan to have everything reconciled in heaven and on earth is running true to plan.
No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Let us strive to be kingdom people, living for what matters, for life in its deepest and lasting sense.
2 Timothy 3:10-17. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law—Ps 118(119):157, 160-161, 165-166, 168. Mark 12:35-37.
