Theme: Convinced or Confused: Rediscovering Authentic Christianity!
There is something mysterious about Christianity that, as unpleasant as it appears in the true message, the more attractive and deeply convincing in truth it becomes. The first reading tells, with joy, the story of a suffering but convinced missionary going from place to place in search of conversion and souls for God. Jesus in the Gospel speaks uncompromisingly of the true expectations and dispositions to a Christian life. The question is: why do you still choose to remain a Christian? What gives you the strong conviction and decision to remain a Christian despite the unpleasant realities it shows? Jesus today speaks again of an impending persecution on Christians. This is one of the areas where Christianity differs from other religions. Jesus did not present the message to be sweet to the ear but gave the real and true message of the Kingdom. No matter how we try to change the message today, we must not forget the life of Christ and the decisive choice we made in being Christians. May God grant us the grace to be authentic Christians and to overcome every trial we come across.
Good morning, and have a wonderful week ahead!
