The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power. — Psalm 98:(see 2)
Mass Readings: Romans 15:14-21 / Luke 16:1-8
In spite of our human weaknesses, God sometimes uses people in profound ways. St. Charles Borromeo, like Moses in ancient Egypt, had a speech impediments but God worked wonderful things through him. Still, sometimes we, like St. Charles and Moses, doubt our abilities to do what God asks of us.
St. Charles lived in the 16th century at a time when the Church faced all kinds of troubles from within and without. In spite of a voice that was barely audible, by his example and effort, St. Charles accomplished positive changes. God’s love burned in him, inspiring joy and commitment. Among other achievements as God’s good steward, St. Charles fed the poor, cared for the sick, and formed the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine.
Prayer: Lord, using your gifts entrusted to us, may we help and inspire others always.
