BEING MEMBERS OF GOD’S FAMILY In the gospel, Jesus made it clear that obedience to the will of God is paramount in being included in the family of God. When we are baptized, we belong to the larger family of God. However, it is not enough to stay on the fringe of the Catholic community. By remaining on the outside, we become observers, guests and spectators, not family members. How, then, do we insert ourselves into the inner circle of Jesus’ family?

THE BEGINNING OF FAITH IS LOVE Falling in love with Jesus is the beginning of faith. Whether a Christian is passionate about his or her faith is dependent on his or her passion for the Lord. If one lacks passion for Christ and the gospel, it is obvious that he or she has not yet come to believe in God’s love for him or her.

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.
