Today's first reading at Mass was taken from Colossians. Some excerpts: "All things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the Blood of his cross through him." The Holy Spirit must have revealed all this to Paul.
We can either accept or reject Paul's claim, but must not ignore it. If we accept it, then we must follow up by preparing ourselves for it.
