Zephaniah 2:3; 3:12-13. Originally “the remnant” comprised either those who were left behind after Judah was conquered by Babylon or the exiles taken away from the land—those who were so poor that all they had left was their faith in God. But this title was spiritualized to mean those who placed their faith in God first, above any possessions.

Psalm of the Day:  Ps (145) 146
God acts in unexpected ways to heal and care for those who have no one else to care for them.

1 Corinthians 1:26-31. This reading accords fairly well with today's other readings. Paul reminds the Corinthians that they don’t have much to boast about. All they have, in fact, is faith.

Matthew 5:1-12. The “beatitudes” praise those who constitute the faithful “remnant” and promise them a reward for their fidelity. Matthew also connects persecuted Christians with this remnant as a way to offer them hope.
