(Twenty-six Sunday in Ordinary Time)
Sunday, October 1,2017.
In order to live in peace we must be “of the same mind, have the same love, united in heart, thinking one thing,” united in spirit and ideals, doing “nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory; rather, humbly regarding others as more important than [ourselves], each looking out not for his own interests, but everyone for those of others” (Philippians 2:2-4).
In order to live in peace we must take as a model the will of God, which is always good, compassionate, self-giving, and just. “Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5).
