St. Paul Miki and Companions

Hebrews 12:18-19, 21-24, Ps.48, Mark 6:7-13

Citizens of Heaven

Paul Miki and his companions lived in fourteenth-century Japan, very distant from us in time and space and culture, and brave beyond our imagining. Yet they are our brothers, united with us as ‘first born sons’ and ‘citizens of heaven’. They are a reminde of the many paths to God and of the unity we share with all believers, no matter how different our ideas or how foreign their customs seem to us. Lord please give us open hearts and free us from our own fixed ideas and prejudices.
