Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. 1 Cor 11:1
Paul is encouraging the Corinthians to imitate his way of life, since he is living his life imitating Christ. If we live imitating Christ then we cannot live for our own advantage, we cannot live not reaching out to others. If we live imitating Christ, we will feel drawn to share what we have. Today I received an email quote Pope Francis said the forced isolation devised to stop the pandemic was presenting the danger of people living the faith only for themselves — detached from the sacraments, the Church and the people of God.

Our life involves more than just our own accomplishments and destiny, it also involves doing good to others and bringing value and joy to their lives.
Let us try to be imitators of Christ in our own small way. (Superb reflection with reference to the message of our Holy Pope Francis).
