On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: September 9, 2017 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


Unless we unite ourselves wholly to the Lord our God, in body, mind and spirit we fool ourselves with grandeur thoughts that we are serving Him. His thoughts are not our thoughts, His ways are not our ways. And unless we seek and love Him with all our heart, mind and soul we remain clueless to the mysteries He wants to reveal and share with us.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour we have been redeemed, let us choose always to turn away from sin and to walk steadfast in His light. Only then can we truly be in full union with Him and be able to serve the least of our brethren. Doing so always with great humility and in His love.

Lord I surrender my heart to You. Let your thoughts be my thoughts and Your words be my words. Let me serve You according to Your will. Amen

First reading
Colossians 1:21-23

Not long ago, you were foreigners and enemies, in the way that you used to think and the evil things that you did; but now he has reconciled you, by his death and in that mortal body. Now you are able to appear before him holy, pure and blameless– as long as you persevere and stand firm on the solid base of the faith, never letting yourselves drift away from the hope promised by the Good News, which you have heard, which has been preached to the whole human race, and of which I, Paul, have become the servant.

Gospel
Luke 6:1-5

One sabbath Jesus happened to be taking a walk through the cornfields, and his disciples were picking ears of corn, rubbing them in their hands and eating them. Some of the Pharisees said, ‘Why are you doing something that is forbidden on the sabbath day?’ Jesus answered them, ‘So you have not read what David did when he and his followers were hungry how he went into the house of God, took the loaves of offering and ate them and gave them to his followers, loaves which only the priests are allowed to eat?’ And he said to them, ‘The Son of Man is master of the sabbath.’
