*READINGS OF THE DAY*
*FROM OUR FIRST READING*
In our first reading today, Paul preaches the gospel to a group of woman in Philippi. One of them, Lydia, responded to Paul’s preaching of the gospel, and she and her household were baptized. Having received the gift of the gospel from Paul, Lydia immediately offered Paul a gift in return, the gift of hospitality.
RELATED: HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF 6TH WEEK OF EASTER.
We have all been graced in various ways by the Lord. Let us look for ways to grace others as we have been graced, to bless others as we have been blessed. Lydia knew what that meant for her concretely, showing hospitality to Paul. The Lord will also make clear to us what it might mean for us concretely to give from what we have received.
*FROM OUR GOSPEL READING*
In the gospel reading, Jesus tells his disciples that after he takes his leave of them they are to become his witnesses. Although Jesus will no longer be in the world in an embodied form, in another sense he will be in the world in an embodied form in and through his disciples who will be his witnesses. That remains our calling today as the Lord’s disciples, to witness to him so that he can be present in the world in an embodied form through us.
May we all have a Blessed Sunday.
