St. Catherine of Siena
St. Paul gives the Jews a history lesson in the first reading. Salvation history had many building blocks. Each generation added to what went before.
One more thing: We are each standing on the shoulders of our ancestors. Like seaweed that rises from the depth of the ocean and grows toward the sun. Christ even speaks of the connectedness of the one He sends, to himself, and thus to God the Father. How did your parents lay the foundation for your faith and what are you doing with your own family to continue the growth towards eternal life? Please comment below!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are the cornerstone upon which I build my faith. Help me to lay a strong foundation for my children, so that they grow ever closer to you. St. Catherine, pray for me. Amen.
