MAKING SENSE OF THE SECOND READING.

During Ordinary Time the Second Reading of the Mass is generally taken from the letters of St. Paul and they are read in a semi            continuous way over a few weeks.  This not the easiest way to follow what is being read but that is the way the Church invites us to listen to them.

These few weeks the letter is Paul’s letter to the Colossians.  What follows are a few question which might help to find some personal meaning in the passage for today.

  2. What do I do in my ordinary life to “keep seeking the things that are above”?
