SUPPORTING THE MISSIONARY ACTIVITIES OF THE CHURCH We must see ourselves as partners in the missionary activity of the Church. Giving to missionaries and their activities is not paying them or even doing them a favour, as if they owe us gratitude. In truth, we are all working for the same mission and the same Lord. Supporting missionary activities in kind or financially is but our partnership with those who are actively and directly involved in the mission of spreading the Good News. They are helping us to fulfill our obligation as much we are helping them to do their work. Regardless whether it is direct or indirect proclamation of the gospel, no Catholic is exempted from this obligation to assist.

BEING PREPARED Are we prepared for the last journey we take in life? Have we made provisions? This is the question that the Lord is asking of us when He spoke of the coming of God’s Kingdom. The truth is that the kingdom will come when we least expect. So how can we live in such a way that we are always prepared for death?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
