The letter to the Philippians was one of the last epistles that Paul wrote.
Tradition tells us that he wrote it while in prison for his faith.
In these circumstances, Paul encourages the Philippians, and us, to persevere in their faith and to remember that their (our) true citizenship is not on this earth but in heaven.
