SUN. SEP. 12. 14th Sunday after Pentecost. sd. Comm. and last gospel of the Holy Name of Mary. Creed, Preface of Trinity. (Green) TODAY'S Epistle is one of the most beautiful and instructive of all. St. Paul begins : "Learn to live and move in the spirit; then there is no danger of giving way to the impulses of corrupt nature"—nor learn to control corrupt nature and you will learn to live in the spirit. Yet, how often are we taught morality in the latter way.
It is through deepening the life of the spirit that we can succeed in controlling the corruption of nature, for, as St. P. I says in his immortal, yet so often forgotten words—even by the conformist devout : "The spirit yields a harvest of love, joy, peace. patience, k indn e s 5, generosity. forbear; e. gentleness. faith. courtesy, temperance, purity."
Balancing the deep lessons of the Epistle is the lyrical Gospel in which Our Lord, contemplating the beauty of nature, tells not to fret and worry. but to trust our Father in heaven. If we make it our first care to find the Kingdom of God, then the temptations, trials and problems of life will inevitably he solved in a holy happiness and peace of mind within our hearts.
