Message from Fr. Beaugrand: Wake up, why are you asleep, O Lord? The introit’s word from the Ps. 43 are asking to God some help as we are striving here on earth. We are calling God as our bodies are heavy here on earth. “For you suffer if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take from you, if a man be lifted up, if a man strike you on the face. I speak according to dishonour, as if we had been weak in this part. Wherein if any man dare (I speak foolishly), I dare also. They are Hebrews: so am I. They are Israelites: so am I. They are the seed of Abraham: so am I. They are the ministers of Christ (I speak as one less wise): I am more” Saint Paul is also making a call and complained to the Corinthians about the people in the community who are attacking him. It is in this passage he mentioned: “for myself I will glory nothing, but in my infirmities”. Then the Lord answered: “My grace is sufficient to thee… Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” Church wants us to meditate on us as individual and as a community uniting the 2nd Corinthians to the parable of the Sower in Luke. In what ground does the seed be planted? For sure, Paul’s followers heard him maybe too well as they didn’t want to hear what he was saying claiming they had precedence over him. Last week we heard the last will be the first! It is not a matter of time but a matter of work!
