Eleventh Tuesday of Ordinary Time

I say this not by way of command, but to test the genuineness of your love by your concern for others. For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

The genuineness of our faith, hope, and love is tested every day. We are faced with great and small opportunities to show our trust in God and our willingness to do His Will in all things. We meet people who challenge our faith, attack our hopes, and mock our acts of charity and mercy. We also meet people who are in desperate need for someone, anyone to be the light of Christ in their lives. Jesus became like us in order to show us how to be more like him in our daily lives. He shows us that sacrifice for the good of others helps us to grow in holiness and store up spiritual treasures.

Are we genuine in our faith, hope, and love? How can we make ourselves more like Christ? What can we do to become rich in virtue?

O Lord, make us rich in virtue.
