Reflection on St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians 1:26-31

Dearly Beloved, we continue our reflection of the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians.  We have already established the uniqueness of a person’s status in Christ. The fact is that being able to see who we truly are in Christ makes a big difference.  Paul emphasized that there should not be any reason for division in the church.  He called on various factions to come together and be united in Christ who alone was crucified for them.

Introduction to Paul’s first letter the to the Corinthians

 

Dearly beloved, we have come to the second Sunday in ordinary time. From now until we get into lent from 1st March, our second reading will be taken progressively from the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians. It is undeniable that St. Paul’s letters are among the few difficult books in the bible.  I would wish to make an effort to limit all Sunday reflections to the book.

Dearly beloved, Someone shared this story in relation to today’s celebration. Do permit me to share it with you. In a particular kingdom, after the death of the king, the Prince had to choose a wife before his coronation as the next king. The Prince made it open for every young girl in the kingdom to exhibit her qualities and draw his attention. Several young girls started wearing sexy clothes to seduce the Prince but he was not moved.  Some began to wear wonderful hairstyles but the Prince was not moved.
