God’s Building

November 9, 2021

Each day, I reflect upon a word or a phrase inspired by the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.

You are God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9)

GOD’S BUILDING: When we think of “God’s building” or “God’s house” we think of the church we walk into each week to celebrate Mass together. When we go to Mass, Jesus is present in four ways: He is present in the Word (Scripture); he is present in the priest (in persona Christi); he is present, of course, in the Eucharist; and finally, he is present in the congregation – in US.

That being the case, St. Paul reminds us that WE are the Church. It is through us that the world comes to know Christ. In our thoughts, words, and actions, we bring Christ to others.

We must keep this in mind as we live each day. The survival of the Church depends on our intentionality.
