Friday of week 8 in Ordinary Time
Saints Marcellinus and Peter, Martyrs
First reading – Ecclesiasticus 44:1,9-13
“But here is a list of generous men whose good works have not been forgotten”. The author is speaking about what really remains in life. It is the generosity that lasts. It is the good works that last. Again, there is something special about being generous and good. It is contagious. All those who are in contact with us would also like to be generous and to be good. It’s important to be generous because only in being generous you can imitate God who loves you with generosity. Generosity is not giving more. It is about setting your boundaries of giving. In Jesus the boundary is the last drop of blood. Let’s reflect: How much am I generous with others?
