Our first reading is an excerpt from a letter St. Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome. When he wrote it, he had never met those people, and he had never been to Rome.
Oddly enough, although he had never seen Jesus in the flesh, Christ meant more to him than anything else imaginable.
"I am convinced that neither death nor life; nor angels or principalities, not any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God inm Christ Jesus our Lord."
What does Paul's complete fidelity to Christ suggest to you who go by the name of Christian?
What it suggests to me is that. as a Christian and a priest, I need to have a greater love than I have for Christ. How can I go about acquiring it?
