THE NEW MILLENNIUM MIND

 
"All that matters is that in any and every way, whether from specious motives or genuine ones, Christ is being proclaimed!" —Philippians 1:18
 

We can have the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16) and believe that proclaiming Christ is all that matters. "That is what brings" us joy (Phil 1:18).

If our minds have been transformed (Rm 12:2) and we have the mind of Christ (see Phil 2:5), then " 'life' means Christ; hence dying is so much gain" (Phil 1:21). We "long to be freed from this life and to be with Christ, for that is the far better thing" (Phil 1:23).

If we have the mind of Christ, we will choose the lowest place (Lk 14:10), empty ourselves (Phil 2:7), and humbly obey the Lord even to death (Phil 2:8).

How can we have the mind of Christ? How can we even want to have the mind of Christ? How can we love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds? (Mt 22:37) How can we get our minds off ourselves? How can we change our minds? "For man it is impossible; but for God all things are possible" (Mt 19:26). In this long-awaited year of the Great Jubilee, cry out for God's grace and mercy. Receive a new millennium mind.

 
Prayer: Father, may my Baptism fully affect my mind.
Promise: "I have full confidence that now as always Christ will be exalted through me, whether I live or die." —Phil 1:20
Praise: St. Martin was called "the Charitable" because he provided the poor with food, clothing, and medicine.
