PUTTING ALL THINGS UNDER HIS FEET
 
Our great hope is in the fullness of the one Lord who fills all things in every way.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
When we think of our human condition, we should be aware of how weak, we are. In one sense we can say that life is a mountain to climb to get to our eternal home. We do not have the power to make the journey on our own, but there is someone who does, and that someone is our heavenly Father.
 
How great is God's loving power? St. Paul says that the power which God uses within us is like the power which raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Death is a reality for us. Death recognizes no distinction among people. It overcomes the rich and the poor, the elderly and the young, male and female. Although death is inevitable, it is difficult for us to accept our mortality. We know in a theoretical way that we one day will die, yet we almost feel that it will not happen to us. We need our faith in God's loving power to raise us from dead to accept this reality. Then we shall be filled with great hope!
 
In today's first reading in St. Paul's letter to the Ephesians contains a prayer that we may know the great hope to which God our Father has called us and the wealth of His glorious heritage. This hope depends on our trust in the immeasurable scope of God's love and power. Again this is not unlike the strength he showed in raising His Son Christ Jesus from the dead. Our great hope is in the fullness of the one Lord who fills all things in every way.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: You have given Your Son rule over the works of Your Hand (Ps 8). God has put all things under Jesus' feet, and we have come to know our smallness and our greatness, our dignity and our nothingness.
 
Saint Teresa of Avila, pray for us. Amen.
