Readings for Today

Today’s first reading from Saint Paul reminds us, put simply, that we are all in this together. When one member suffers, we all suffer. The effects of others’ sins are felt by all. The grace that comes from good actions is available to everyone. The body is one, but the talents are diverse. We have a sense of this in our own lives, even apart from faith. A friend or a spouse goes through a difficult time, and we feel badly too. Even the reception of the sacraments reminds us we are connected. To be Catholic, or Christian, is not a “me and Jesus thing.” No, it is an “us and Jesus” thing. For better or worse, we are in this together.
