But now it has been manifested to his holy ones, to whom God chose to make known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; it is Christ in you, the hope for your glory.Colossians 1:27
Praise and glory to you, God our loving and merciful Father, in choosing us, calling us despite our sinfulness and weaknesses to be the indwelling of your Son Jesus Christ.
Thank you, dear Father, in making us all a part of your grand design since the beginning that Jesus Christ may dwell in us so we may participate in your glory. As the "image of the invisible God" and the "first-born from the dead", Christ is our own destiny who cannot be attained apart from his Church, his Body.
Keep us united and one, Father, as your children and brother of Christ in the Holy Eucharist that is the summit of our Christian life, bearing all pains and sufferings with joy like St. Paul for the good of everyone, especially the marginalized; may in our Eucharistic celebrations we learn to set things "straight" by doing what is good and pleasing to your sight like what Jesus did in healing the man with a withered hand at the synagogue on a sabbath day. Amen.
