October 28th: "Three Gifts in Christ"
#875 The Light of the Gospel
"Our heart is like the darkened earth; the Gospel is like the sun,
enlightening and giving life to our hearts.
May the true sun of Thy righteousness shine in our hearts, O Lord!"
~~St. John of Kronstadt
#876 Mercy for the humble
"...he began to shout, 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!'"
#877 The community of the body
"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets,
some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,
to prepare God's people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God
and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
