Giving one’s life for one’s faith is a wonderful thing. What do I do with the gift of my faith on a daily basis?
Reading of the second letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to Timothy
(2 Tm 1, 1-3.6-12)
Paul, apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, according to the promise of life
that we have in Christ Jesus, Timothy, my beloved child. To you, grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Lord.
I am grateful to God, to whom I worship with a pure conscience,
following my ancestors, I give him thanks by constantly remembering you in my prayers, night and day. This is why, I remind you, revive the free gift of God,
this gift that has been in you since I laid hands on you. For it is not a spirit of fear that God has given us, but a spirit of strength, love and balance. Do not be ashamed to bear witness to our Lord, and do not be ashamed of me, who am his prisoner;
but, with the strength of God, take your share of the suffering related to the proclamation of the Gospel.
Because God saved us, he called us to a holy vocation, not because of our own acts, but because of his own project and his grace. This grace had been given to us in Christ Jesus before all ages, and now it has become visible,
for our Savior, Christ Jesus, manifested himself: he destroyed death, and he made life and immortality shine through the proclamation of the Gospel, for which I received the office of messenger, apostle and teacher. And it is for this reason that I suffer so; but I am not ashamed of it, for I know in whom I have believed, and I have the conviction that it is powerful enough to safeguard, until the day of his coming, the deposit of the faith that he told me.
