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 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 Paul’s letter to Timothy. What follows are a few question which might help to find some personal meaning in the passage for today.
POINTERS FOR PRAYER
- What has been my own experience of suffering in or for the ministry? How have I drawn life from that?
- How is the Lord calling me, in this present moment, to be faithful?
