Today's chapel message focuses on the Apostle Paul's reminder that our lives are the fruit of what we give our greatest attention: what absorbs us, makes us. And furthermore, what makes us, shows.
Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you (Philippians 4:8-9).
We will soon come to Holy Week and the remembrance of our Lord's attentiveness to what mattered most. We will reflect again on how it led him to embody the full extent of Love's redemptive sacrifice and triumph. May we receive that gift in our own lives and imitate our Lord's attentive and tangible love towards those who love us, and even towards those who may be our enemies. That is the gospel the world needs.
A blessed Holy Week and Easter to you all,
