Memorial of Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gŏn, Priest, and Paul Chŏng Ha-sang, and Companions, Martyrs

Undeniably great is the mystery of devotion, who was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed to the Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory.

Jesus is the mystery of our devotion. He was manifested in the flesh for us. He was vindicated by the spirit before, during, and after his life on earth. He is seen and glorified by the angels in heaven and the church on earth. He is proclaimed and believed in throughout the world by his faithful followers. Jesus is the source, center, and summit of our faith and he should be at the core of all we do. Sometimes we fail to be as devoted to him as we should, but it is during those dark times of the soul that we most need to redouble our efforts to be truly devoted to him and his teachings.

Are we as devoted to Jesus as he deserves? What are we doing to manifest him in the world through our words and works? How can we become better proclaimers of his Good News and Glory?

O Lord, help us to have great devotion to you throughout our lives.
