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 is not the easiest way to follow what is being read but that is the way the Church invites us to listen to them.

Today our second reading is from the letter to the Hebrews.  What follows are a few question which might help to find some personal meaning in the passage for today.



  1. In my own experience, how have I dealt with the truly difficult so that it might become a source of life for me?

2.      Is there anything going on now in my life which is painful and upsetting? How is my faith helping me?
