Speak Lord: Lord and Saviour

People who are interested only in unspiritual things can never be pleasing to God. Your interests, however, are not in the unspiritual, but in the spiritual, since the Spirit of God has made his home in you. In fact, unless you possessed the Spirit of Christ you would not belong to him. Though your body may be dead it is because of sin, but if Christ is in you then your spirit is life itself because you have been justified; and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, then he who raised Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.

Romans 8:8-11

The second reading at Mass on Sunday, the 5th Sunday of Lent, reminds us of hte multi-dimensionality of human life – body/spirit; life limited by death and life that continues beyond death; life ‘alone’ and life lived in communion with Christ.

  • Choose the flourishing of the spirit even now in our world and in our bodies and in Christ!
  • Accept the gift of life in the spirit even now in our world and in our bodies and in Christ!
