On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: October 21, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


The landscape of the world is ever changing and not always for the better. More and more are being influenced to think that abortion, same sex marriages are ok. Even killing is a necessary evil for the greater good. Where is our voice in all of these? Is offering our prayers enough?

No! The voice of Jesus must be heard around the World, and He must be able to speak through us. We must stand united as one body in Christ. And when we speak up for the truth we must do so with charity and gentleness. But stand firm and bold in proclaiming the word of God so that all might be filled with the light of Christ. Amen

Let us sing this hymn together…

They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love
***********************

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we pray that our unity will one day be restored

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love Yeah they’ll know we are Christians by our love

We will work with each other, we will work side by side. We will work with each other, we will work side by side.And we’ll guard each man’s dignity and save each man’s pride

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love Yeah, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

First reading
Ephesians 4:1-6

I, the prisoner in the Lord, implore you to lead a life worthy of your vocation. Bear with one another charitably, in complete selflessness, gentleness and patience. Do all you can to preserve the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you together. There is one Body, one Spirit, just as you were all called into one and the same hope when you were called. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God who is Father of all, over all, through all and within all.

Gospel
Luke 12:54-59

Jesus said to the crowds, ‘When you see a cloud looming up in the west you say at once that rain is coming, and so it does. And when the wind is from the south you say it will be hot, and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the face of the earth and the sky. How is it you do not know how to interpret these times?
‘Why not judge for yourselves what is right? For example: when you go to court with your opponent, try to settle with him on the way, or he may drag you before the judge and the judge hand you over to the bailiff and the bailiff have you thrown into prison. I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the very last penny.’
