Taste and See: Grace

Detail of figure from Nativity. Margaret Rope. (c) 2016, Allen Morris

You have probably heard how I have been entrusted by God with the grace he meant for you, and that it was by a revelation that I was given the knowledge of the mystery.

This mystery that has now been revealed through the Spirit to his holy apostles and prophets was unknown to any men in past generations; it means that pagans now share the same inheritance, that they are parts of the same body, and that the same promise has been made to them, in Jesus Christ, through the gospel.

2nd Reading for Solemnity of the Epiphany 
Ephesians 3:2-3,5-6

We have nothing that we have not received as gift. We may have ‘worked for it’, and in the normal sense of things ‘earned’ them. But at a deeper level everything is gift, everything comes from God’s grace.

Our true work is to enjoy the gifts, to make the most of them – and to share them with others, gift engendering gift and giver.

  • What do you share? Or give?
  • What do you hold back on?
