Wednesday of week 22 in Ordinary Time
First reading – Colossians 1:1-8
In the words of St. Paul we can find out the basic characteristics of our relationship with others who are far away from us or with those who are close to us. He says, “We have never failed to remember you in our prayers and to give thanks for you to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ever since we heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you show towards all the saints because of the hope which is stored up for you in heaven”. That means, never fail to remember others in our prayers, each day and every day. This is important. Then to give thanks for others to God for their faith, for the good things in others. Finally, to remember the love others have shown towards us and all others because of the hope stored up in heaven and not for other reasons. Let’s reflect: Am I remembering enough others in our prayers, thanking God for their faith and love?
