Paul and Timothy: Wednesday, June 1st, 2016
Listen to the homily here.
“Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God for the promise of life in Christ Jesus, to Timothy, my dear child…”
· Relationship between an elder priest and a young priest
· Paul the teacher, Timothy a disciple
“For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.”
· We must not be cowards!
· The Spirit cave us: power, love, self-control
· Pray, pray, pray
“On this account I am suffering these things; but I am not ashamed, for I know him in whom I have believed and am confident that he is able to guard what has been entrusted to me until that day.”
· Was Paul a coward?
o “I am not ashamed…for I know him in whom I have believed and am confident”
How are each of you confident today?
