Twenty-Second Monday in Ordinary Time

The Lord comes to judge the earth. For great is the LORD and highly to be praised; awesome is he, beyond all gods. For all the gods of the nations are things of nought, but the LORD made the heavens.

Everything in this world is nothing compared to God. We are nothing. The earth is nothing. The universe is nothing. And yet, God has given us His all though the sacrifice of His Beloved Son. He died for us because He loves us in spite of our nothingness. He gave each of us His Divine Image to bear into the world. Not to hide it, but to reveal it through our thoughts, words, and works. He gave us the Holy Spirit to guide and inspire us so that we could magnify Him and rejoice in His Goodness. And in the end, we will be judged by how well we manifested God to others because we are all called to be God bearers and without Him we are empty vessels, devoid of substance and meaning. But with Him, we are His children, and worthy of spending the rest of eternity with Him in Heaven.

Do we recognize our nothingness without God? How can we allow God to fill us with His Divine Image? What can we do to magnify and manifest Him to all the world?

O Lord, all is naught before you.
