Sts. Timothy and Titus

2 Tm 1:1-8

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, for the sake of the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus,

To Timothy, my beloved child:

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I am grateful to God—whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did—when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. Recalling your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you.

For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God.

Faith of Our Ancestors

When I was in college, I would take the train home from DC to upstate New York for breaks. I had to switch trains in New York City and would intentionally book my second train for late afternoon so I could spend the day in the city. In addition to visiting my favorite restaurants and looking at the Christmas windows at the big department stores, I always took some time in St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Being in that holy space made me feel very close to my Catholic grandmother who had lived in the New York City area.

Today’s reading speaks about Timothy’s lineage of faith. My Irish Catholic family taught me my faith. In times of doubt, I often think about what my grandmother must have had to wrestle with in her faith, and yet she remained faithful. Her faith inspires my faith.

Who in your family taught you about faith?

—Kay Gregg is the Assistant Department Chair for Campus Ministry at Loyola Academy.

Prayer

God, thank you for all of those in my life Who have helped me learn about my faith. Help me take some time today To say special prayers for the blessing They have been in my life. Amen.
