On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: October 31, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

I am no better than anyone else, I am just as good. My joy, my reward comes from serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is an attitude we should adopt and live,in servitude of our Lord and our brethren. For only then can we call ourselves disciples. Only then can love as we should and put that love into action.

Jesus paid a debt He did not owe. For us who could not repay. So that liberated from the bonds of death through sin, we might live life to the full in Him.

Let us emulate His love for us in servitude of the least of our brethren. Amen

First reading
Philippians 2:1-4

If our life in Christ means anything to you, if love can persuade at all, or the Spirit that we have in common, or any tenderness and sympathy, then be united in your convictions and united in your love, with a common purpose and a common mind. That is the one thing which would make me completely happy. There must be no competition among you, no conceit; but everybody is to be self-effacing. Always consider the other person to be better than yourself, So that nobody thinks of his own interests first but everybody thinks of other people’s interests instead.

Luke 14:12-14

Jesus said to his host, one of the leading Pharisees, ‘When you give a lunch or a dinner, do not ask your friends, brothers, relations or rich neighbours, for fear they repay your courtesy by inviting you in return. No; when you have a party, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; that they cannot pay you back means that you are fortunate, because repayment will be made to you when the virtuous rise again.’
