full revelation (Col 1:26) of what was once a mystery but is now revealed to the holy ones,
"full measure of wisdom," with the grace for all of us to become complete in Christ (Col 1:28),
the full energy of Christ, "which is so powerful a force within" us (Col 1:29), and
"full assurance" through our "knowledge of the mystery of God — namely Christ — in Whom every treasure of wisdom and knowledge is hidden" (Col 2:2-3).
"It pleased God to make absolute fullness reside in" Jesus (Col 1:19), and it pleases Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit (see Acts 2:4).
Prayer: Father, make me a larger vessel so I can be more full of everything you want to give me.
Promise: "Only in God is my soul at rest; from Him comes my salvation." —Ps 62:2
Praise: Miguel and Rita joined the Catholic Church after a detailed study of the writings of the early Church Fathers. They were hungry for the fullness of the truth the Catholic Church offered.
