Saturday 16 September

Saints Cornelius, Pope, and Cyprian, Bishop, Martyrs
Saturday of week 23 in Ordinary Time
First reading – 2 Corinthians 4:7-15
“We are in difficulties on all sides, but never cornered; we see no answer to our problems, but never despair; we have been persecuted, but never deserted; knocked down, but never killed; always, wherever we may be, we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may always be seen in our body”. Because the power comes from God and not from us. The Lord Jesus gives life and gives grace. More thanksgiving will be given to the glory of God. We are in difficulties on all sides, but never cornered. Many problems are there, many times we don’t find answers, but the life of Jesus is there. We must not look for solutions, we must not look for responses, but we must look for the presence of Jesus Christ. Let’s reflect: Are we looking in our problems, solutions or the presence of Christ?
