On Today’s Gospel

We are young and invincible, full of vim and vigour. Everything in life is for the taking, for we are Kings and Queens of our destinies. A fantasy most live out till they come face to face with their mortality.

We let pride and sin rule our hearts and minds for we have an insatiable appetite. To fulfil our wanton desires, to lead exuberant lives and to be recognised. Never mind the spills onward with the thrills lest boredom takes over.

The Author of life made us for Himself and our hearts are restless till we rest in Him. Jesus my Lord, fill my life with the wonders of You for there is nothing else I shall want. Amen

First reading
Ecclesiastes 1:2-11

Gospel
Luke 9:7-9

Herod the tetrarch had heard about all that was being done by Jesus; and he was puzzled, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead, others that Elijah had reappeared, still others that one of the ancient prophets had come back to life. But Herod said, ‘John? I beheaded him. So who is this I hear such reports about?’ And he was anxious to see Jesus.
