??be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you are not expecting him.? ? Luke 12:40
2 You have heard of the stewardship of God?s grace that was given to me for your benefit, 3 [namely, that] the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly earlier. 4 When you read this you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to human beings in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit, 6 that the Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body, and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 7 Of this I became a minister by the gift of God?s grace that was granted me in accord with the exercise of his power. 8 To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light [for all] what is the plan of the mystery hidden from ages past in God who created all things, 10 so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the principalities and authorities in the heavens. 11 This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness of speech and confidence of access through faith in him.

READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Mark 7-9
FAITHFUL, FAR-SIGHTED STEWARD
Our Lord in today?s Gospel asks, ?Who in your opinion is that faithful, farsighted steward whom the master will set over his servants?? Curiously, the First Reading provides an answer, a person who can very well exemplify that devoted steward: no other than St. Paul himself. The great Apostle to the Gentiles testifies, ?Through the gift God in his goodness bestowed on me by the exercise of his power, I became a minister of the gospel. To me, the least of all believers, was given the grace to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ and to enlighten all men on the mysterious design which for ages was hidden in God, the Creator of all.?
Sts. Crispin and Crispinian, martyrs, pray for us.
