“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Galatians 3:26-28

TODAY’S WORD…

.

For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

And all who have been united with Christ in baptism

have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.

.

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female.

For you are all one in Christ Jesus.

.

– Galatians 3:26-28 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

There is an intimate union between the baptised person and Christ,

a union so intense that the Christian can be said to be "another Christ".

.

In the order of nature, it may be said, all men are radically equal:

as descendants of Adam, we are born in the image and likeness of God.

The different functions which people have in the life of society

do not alter this basic, natural equality.

From this point of view there is no real difference,

nor should there be, between one person and another,

no difference even between man and woman:

both are made in the image and likeness of God.

.

This essential, original equality was restored by Christ,

who became man and died on the Cross to save all.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Our Lord has come to bring peace, good news and life to all.

Not only to the rich, nor only to the poor.

Not only to the wise, nor only to the simple.

To everyone.

To the brethren, for brothers we are, children of the same Father, God.

.

So there is only one race,

the race of the children of God.

There is only one colour,

the colour of the children of God.

And there is only one language,

the language which speaks to the heart and to the mind, without the noise of words,

making us know God and love one another”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, I believe that you made me in Your image and likeness.

Lord, help me become more like You in all that I say, think and do.
