St. Paul Proclaims "The Glory of God on the Face of Christ"
In an important passage of his second letter to the Corinthians Paul refers to the ministry of those called to preach the Gospel, he writes
"For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves for the sake of Jesus. For God who said 'Let light shine out of darkness', has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God on the face of Christ."
Let us pray that the Holy Spirit will make Paul's words our own. Show in our own hearts your face, O Lord!
