Here’s my homily from this morning. Self-pity can affect us emotionally & spiritually. In this morning’s reading, Saint Paul welcomed adversities & trials. They make us strong in the sight of God. The more trouble we have, the more we should depend on & trust in God. It’s the most powerful thing we can do.
In this morning’s reading, Saint Paul is raising money for the missions. He finds that Macedonia, the poorest church, was the most generous. Often the most generous are the poorest and those who are struggling the most.
