One Bread, One Body - Reflection for October 21, 2021


"How I wish the blaze were ignited!" –Luke 12:49

Jesus came to light a fire on the earth (Lk 12:49). He was in anguish until He had completed His Father's plan (Lk 12:50). Jesus loved us so much He wanted everyone to be saved as soon as possible. Considering Jesus' intensity, He must be upset by our lethargy. He's been waiting for almost two thousand years for us to get ready for His second and final coming.

We have slowed down God's plan of salvation by our sins and apathy. We must repent, intercede, and evangelize so all will hear the Gospel (Mt 24:14) and Jesus can come back for a holy, immaculate, and glorious Church (Eph 5:27). If Christians begin to have the intensity of Christ, God's plan will be restored to the speed which He intended.

God's time is fast. He has come to light a fire on the earth. Let's repent of sleepwalking and slow motion so we can run the race for Jesus (2 Tm 4:7).

PRAYER: "May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith, and may charity be the root and foundation of your life" (Eph 3:17).
PROMISE: "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." –Rm 6:23
PRAISE: Peter was gradually drawn to Christ in the Eucharist and became Catholic.
