Commentary on the the second part of the Epistle for the day (1 Cor. 9:24-27; 10:1-5): “For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea. And all in Moses were baptized, in the cloud, and in the sea: And did all eat the same spiritual food, And all drank the same spiritual drink; (and they drank of the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.) But with most of them God was not well pleased.”
If you want to know how you are doing spiritually, you can ask yourself these simple questions:
- Do I find Mass boring or interesting?
- Do I find it easy to pray or hard to pray?
- Do I speak to Jesus easily after Communion or is it difficult to speak to him?
- Am I better at praying than I was when I was younger, or am I worse?
That will tell you what you are, and what direction you’re going.
