On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: October 8, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ is what unites us all. And it is through this faith that our capacity to love increases exponentially. It will not matter what language we speak, what race we belong to, our financial background, size, shape, disabilities or even idiosyncrasies we have. For we are all one in Christ Jesus. 

Sin and evil on the other hand seeks to divide and scatter. And so to remain steadfast in our faith and love for our Lord and God we need to nourish ourselves daily with the living Word of God. Ponder over and reflect on His love and will for us. Keeping His Word close to our hearts always. 

Lord Jesus I rejoice in hearing Your Word! Now and forever. Amen 

First reading
Galatians 3:22-29

Scripture makes no exceptions when it says that sin is master everywhere. In this way the promise can only be given through faith in Jesus Christ and can only be given to those who have this faith.
Before faith came, we were allowed no freedom by the Law; we were being looked after till faith was revealed. The Law was to be our guardian until the Christ came and we could be justified by faith. Now that that time has come we are no longer under that guardian, and you are, all of you, sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. All baptised in Christ, you have all clothed yourselves in Christ, and there are no more distinctions between Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female, but all of you are one in Christ Jesus. Merely by belonging to Christ you are the posterity of Abraham, the heirs he was promised.

Luke 11:27-28

As Jesus was speaking, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said, ‘Happy the womb that bore you and the breasts you sucked!’ But he replied, ‘Still happier those who hear the word of God and keep it!’
