Epiphany 2 - Year A
“Called to be saints”, is a line worth remembering as well as simply membering - being mindful of something important, like being beloved.
We might translate this phrase, “Intended to be beloved”. Note that this is addressed to a congregation and not just an individual. When was the last time you dealt with the plural reality of “saintliness” or “belovedness”?
A result of revealing mindful saints is the giving of thanks. May someone be thankful for your individual saintliness and our common belovedness.
