AUGUST 30, 2021, MONDAY 22ND WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

August 30

The mainstay of Christian education is a well-founded and clear knowledge of the Church of Christ, of which we are members. O how little we feel the dignity and true sweetness of our belonging! We Christians are in fact divided and, so to speak, untied one from the other; therefore we do not feel sufficiently the power which binds us together and should make us one through mutual love.

Remember your name

After being baptized with water, Catholics are anointed with oil, and these words are said over them, “As Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet, and King, so may you live always as a member of his body . . .” That means we share in those offices of Christ. Those are big roles—how to live up to them? Priests worship and make offerings to God, prophets speak the truth and live the gospel, royalty leads and takes care of others. If you remind yourself regularly of the sacred titles you were given at Baptism, how might that help you fulfill your promise?

Today’s readings: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Luke 4:16-30 (431).

“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
