23-30 August: Peter Edmonds SJ introduces us to the early Christians to whom Paul was writing in the letter from which our first readings are taken.
Saturday 21 May: In today's first reading, Paul meets Timothy, to whom he would write two of his 'Pastoral Letters'.
Brian Purfield explains why Paul thought it was necessary to write to the likeable but easily-influenced community of Christians in Colossae.
Fri 11 Sept: The point of Paul's longest sporting metaphor is that the Corinthians must be as serious about their mission as athletes are about their training (and as Paul is about his preaching).

The passage about the 'emptying' of Christ is the part of the Letter to the Philippians that the Church has made most use of in her liturgy.
