Feast of Sts. Timothy and Titus

2 Tim. 1:1-8 | Ps. 96:1-3, 7-8, 10 | Mk. 4:21-25

Paul is writing Timothy and Titus, whose feast we celebrate today, encouraging them to be worthy disciples of God.  He reminds them that he is grateful for them and remembers them in prayer.  Paul invites them to live like him and to be willing to suffer for the Gospel.  

Take time to allow yourself to hear, truly hear, the word of God.  Spend time asking God for the gifts you need and respond to God’s love with all your being.  Ask to be able to truly believe all that God has said and promises. 

Today, the Gospel calls us to a largeness of heart!  We are asked not to put the light of our faith under a bushel basket because of fear or ridicule, etc. Christ calls us to give freely from all that we have been given.  We fear doing this, thinking that if we do so, we will not have enough. Christ tells us the opposite, “The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.”  This jolts us.  If we give generously, we will receive generously.  This applies to all aspects of life: tithing, knowledge, joy, clothing, food, compassion, etc.

Take time to allow yourself to hear, truly hear, the word of God.  Spend time asking God for the gifts you need and respond to God’s love with all your being.  Ask to be able to truly believe all that God has said and promises.
