Saint Pius of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), Priest
First reading – Galatians 2:19-20
“The life I now live in this body I live in faith: faith in the Son of God who loved me and who sacrificed himself for my sake”. To have a life in faith is something very fundamental. Faith in the Son of God who loved us and who sacrificed himself for our sake. This faith is the basis of our commitment to Jesus. This faith is the basis of our relationship with Jesus. Faith in the second person of the Trinity who loved us and who sacrificed himself for us. When you feel the love of God and understand the value of His Sacrifice, you can be ready to be crucified with Christ. Faith in the love of God and in the sacrifice of Christ prepares us to live a life with God. In such a life, we will be living the life of Christ who lives in us. Let’s reflect: Am I letting the life of Christ who lives in me to lead my way?
