Sts. Nereus & Achilleus, St. Pancras
Readings of the day:
Psalm 42:2-3, 43:3-4
With God, there is no distinction: rich or poor, strong or weak, white or black; the same spirit has been given to us when we were baptized in Christ. The spirit that makes us yearn for him, following his lead always till the end of our lives.
Do not make God’s Holy spirit sad; for the spirit is God’s mark of ownership on you, a guarantee that the day will come when God will set you free. ~ Ephesians 4:30
Let us form ourselves with the spirit that has poured in our heart by doing what is true and holy, worthy of our calling as a sheep of God. We shouldn’t feed on dungs and make it form our hearts but rather the pasture that has set aside for those that walk in his way. The shepherd has given his all unreservedly, may we then follow wholeheartedly by doing what is pleasing in his sight. We should let go always of what would tie down our garments to the filth, instead raise our heads high with the holy mountain set in our sight.
May God bless and help us.
Peace and Love of Christ.
