Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
January 26, 2019 – Saturday
1st Reading: 2 Timothy 1:1-8
Gospel: Mark 3:20-21
“Bear your share of hardship for the Gospel with the strength that comes from God.” (2 Tim 1:8)
Today, we celebrate the Feast of Saints Timothy and Titus – the two companions of St. Paul in the mission whose following of Christ started when they heard St. Paul’s preaching about the Gospel.
Like them, we got to know Christ because someone willingly shared to us the Word of God. As Christians, we are called to continue this mission bearing all its challenges and struggles. How beautiful that with the life of Saints Timothy and Titus, Jesus is assuring us that no matter how hard the mission is, it will always be sustained by God’s strength.
What challenges your mission of sharing the Word of God? Carry on! Believe that God accompanies you and will give you the strength that you need.
