Desert Reflections: The God of the Living

Jesus points out to the Sadducees in today’s gospel that the gift of eternal life flows directly from God – the God of life, not of death. Therefore, Fr Paul advises, we should live courageously, knowing that God is always with us – animating every moment.

Today’s Readings

God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.
2 TM 1:1-3, 6-12

“[God] is not God of the dead but of the living.”
MK 12:18-27
