9/3/2021 MEMORIAL OF GREGORY THE GREAT, POPE, DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH

Keep it all in balance

It’s never easy to find the right balance between sitting quietly and attentively on the sidelines and joining in the scrum of life’s adventures. Our prayer life helps us discern how best to hold these together and respond with love for ourselves and the common good. Gregory was a Benedictine monk of the late sixth century and loved his life as a contemplative. Yet, when called upon to take the helm of a church suffering from the fall of Rome and the plague, he stepped up and found his calling expressed in new ways through prayer, caring for those in need, and leading compassionately. Find the right balance between action and contemplation.

Today’s readings: 

Colossians 1:15-20; Luke 5:33-39 (435).

“In him, all the fullness was pleased to dwell.”
