Tuesday 23rd Week in Ordinary Time
Tuesday 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Year I
Brothers and sisters: As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in
him, rooted in him and built upon him and established in the faith as
you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one
captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy according to the
tradition of men, according to the elemental powers of the world and
not according to Christ. For in him dwells the whole fullness of the
deity bodily, and you share in this fullness in him, who is the head
of every principality and power. In him you were also circumcised with
a circumcision not administered by hand, by stripping off the carnal
body, with the circumcision of Christ. You were buried with him in
baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the
power of God, who raised him from the dead. And even when you were
dead in transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, he
brought you to life along with him, having forgiven us all our
transgressions; obliterating the bond against us, with its legal
claims, which was opposed to us, he also removed it from our midst,
nailing it to the cross; despoiling the principalities and the powers,
he made a public spectacle of them, leading them away in triumph by
Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in
prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and
from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he
named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a
Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a
traitor. And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level
ground. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the
people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and
Sidon came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even
those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured. Everyone in
the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and
healed them all.
We know a lot about the apostles Peter and John, much less about the
others and only infamy about Judas Iscariot. And yet, they all shared
in the honor of having been selected by Jesus. We need not be envious
of these apostles. At baptism, Christ himself, speaking through the
priest who baptized us, called each of us by name. Perhaps we share an
apostolic name, but whatever our name, it became ours and served to
As Christians, we should never think that anyone is insignificant in
God's plan. Everyone is part of the history that Christ himself
shapes. He wants each one of us to be a part of that history as living
witnesses to faith. Let us pray for the grace to live and act in
accord with the Christian dignity. Every one of us is asked to
dedicated ourselves to the love and service of God and people.
