How does one build on a solid foundation? On Christ. Christ is the Rock from Which flows the Blood and Water which give life to His Church.
You cannot give what you do not have. Encounter Christ.
Pray daily. Pray the perfect prayer of Holy Mass every Sunday and on holy days. Prayer that is intentional, engaging the heart and mind, enjoys the presence of the Lord through the Holy Spirit.
One who meets and knows Christ dares to share Him with others.
Practice active charity in the family and with your neighbor. If Christ is Present He makes Himself known in word and action.
Possess Christ. His presence will be made known by the true joy only He can give.
We are not overcome by the sorrows of this world as we look with confidence and the hope that faith brings to the charity without end in Heaven. Christ is Risen. His Life, possessed as a treasure that cannot be taken away, leads surely to life everlasting.
Meeting Christ in the Liturgy offers a reflection for The Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time.
