On Today’s Gospel

Nothing is hidden from God our heavenly Father. He knows all that is hidden in our hearts. And in His mercy He gives us time to mend our waywardnes. Let us examine our conscience and reconcile with our heavenly Father. So that His saving grace through His Son Jesus may grant us new life.

For unless our hearts are transformed to receive the abundant love and graces He wants us to have, we limit ourselves. Our hearts remain small and petty, seeking to glorify only ourselves and at times by putting others down.

Lord Jesus I offer myself to You, a living sacrifice. Let Your Will be done. Amen

FIRST READING
1 Corinthians 4:1–5

GOSPEL
Luke 5:33–39

The scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus,
“The disciples of John the Baptist fast often and offer prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees do the same; but yours eat and drink.” Jesus answered them, “Can you make the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, and when the bridegroom is taken away from them, then they will fast in those days.” And he also told them a parable. “No one tears a piece from a new cloak to patch an old one. Otherwise, he will tear the new and the piece from it will not match the old cloak. Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be ruined. Rather, new wine must be poured into fresh wineskins. And no one who has been drinking old wine desires new, for he says, ‘The old is good.’”

For Reflection

Human wisdom blocks out and ignores the little things and often cannot perceive and receive the wisdom of our heavenly Father. Until we fall on our knees we cannot rise to the power of glorifying our heavenly Father. Let us rise together to His call to be Fishers of men. Amen
