Paul’s words, as those of Moses in the Sabbath Torah readings, reveal the urgency of those nearing the end of their lives. There is passion in the words of Paul to a beloved disciple. Cling to them as you would to the deathbed words of a beloved friend; the same is true in the final words of Jesus in the Friday readings that occur just a few days before the crucifixion.

Pray with a light and steadied heart, so balanced, that you move to action only when Christ’s Word prompts you to do so. Listen with the inner ears of the heart to those special movements of the Holy Spirit in your daily readings that especially bear witness to the truth contained in the verse for today (3:16). What are the special teaching points that God calls you to incarnate in the way in which you will live today?
