On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: October 28, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


You and I are saints. 

For by virtue of our baptism, we were born into new life of Holiness in Christ Jesus our Lord. Even our bodies become Holy temples for the Lord God to dwell. What delight and joy it is for such truth to be revealed to us sons and daughters of God our heavenly Father . 

In deep prayer and in communion with our Lord it is our duty to ponder deeply and reflect on the glorious mysteries He has revealed so that we may live our lives more fully according to His Will . 

One day soon we will all be reunited with the Holy Saints in Heaven And so just like the Saints before us, we will strive each day to do His will for us with a sense of inquiry and passion. Amen 

St Simon and St Jude pray for us. 

First reading
Ephesians 2:19-22

You are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God’s household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone. As every structure is aligned on him, all grow into one holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.

Gospel
Luke 6:12-16

Jesus went out into the hills to pray; and he spent the whole night in prayer to God. When day came he summoned his disciples and picked out twelve of them; he called them ‘apostles’: Simon whom he called Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot who became a traitor.
