09-22-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 22, 2018
What you sow is not brought to life unless it dies.
And what you sow is not the body that is to be,
but a bare kernel of wheat, . . .
So also is the resurrection of the dead.
It is sown corruptible; it is raised incorruptible.
It is sown dishonorable; it is raised glorious.
It is sown weak; it is raised powerful.
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual one.

What a beautiful picture of the resurrection, that St. Paul paints for us today.  And equally important as our recognition of the glory of our resurrection after “natural” death, is our recognition of both the physical and spiritual natures of our lives now.

And that means that just as we need to nourish our physical being for it to thrive and grow – so also, we need to do the same for our Spiritual nature.

That nourishment comes in our closeness to Jesus.  And our closeness to Jesus comes in our prayer life, our reading life, our Sacramental life and our sharing of God’s love with every person we come in contact with.

Jesus said, “This is my body!”
Consume Him, and live!
