Dear People of God may the Lord bless you with grace, peace, and health in the Holy Spirit. It is 03rd September 2022.
We celebrate the memorial of Saint Gregory the Great, Pope, and Doctor of the Church.
We reflect on 1 Corinthians 4:6-15 and Luke 6:1-5.
Everything is a gift from God.
The realisation of having everything as a gift makes us responsible and grateful. Pride, arrogance, and divisive behaviours all die out when we value the gift and the Giver of the gift. “What have you that you did not receive? If you received it, why do you boast as if it were not a gift.”
God endows us with peace as we value the day of the Lord. Yes, we have six days for our livelihood and living. Sabbath brings peace, tranquillity and calmness to our minds and hearts, which is so important for good health. A day is set apart as we give back to God and the poor what we owe indeed.
May the Lord continue to bless us value the gift and put the gift the use for a broader purpose. God bless you.
