Reflections by Fr Anthony Crook RAN | Friday of the 22nd  Week in Ordinary Time (Memorial of St Gregory the Great)  

Here, as forecast earlier on the week, we have these wonderful words from St Paul to the people of Colossae concerning the cosmic and timeless Christ:

Brothers and sisters:Cosmic

Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
He is the head of the Body, the Church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he himself might be preeminent.

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, whether those on earth or those in heaven.

I could write some thoughts about this reading, but I think the following song by He Is by Mark Schultz much more aptly leads us in some reflection on these stirring words from St Paul: He Is - Mark Schultz - YouTube
