Fifth Sunday of Lent

Each moment can be a moment of grace if our faith is truly genuine and alive. And only those who have known Christ deeply in this way will ever lived in this grace and will able to grasp and appreciate what Paul was talking about with the Philippians in today's first gospel reading. For Paul, knowing Christ is enough, a kind of knowing that surpasses everything. What does your heart tell you now? Do you want something or someone other than Christ? And will that something be ever enough?

Philippians 3:8-14

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
