On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: September 20, 2017 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Jesus is the Lord of Lords, the King of kings! He came down from heaven to be with us, died for our sins and rose from the dead claiming victory over death for us. He ascended into heaven and will return again. Accept, embrace, cherish and live the truth of our faith in Jesus Christ our Lord!

Cast your doubts and unbelief aside and open your hearts to Him and be touched. We who have experienced the Lord can attest to the wonder and awe of His glory in our very own lives and those of others.

Playtime is over, time to get serious about your faith. Open your minds to Him and be healed. Open your souls to Him and let Him fill you with His grace. Live the fullness of life only to be found in Him.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Now and forever. Amen

First reading
1 Timothy 3:14-16

At the moment of writing to you, I am hoping that I may be with you soon; but in case I should be delayed, I wanted you to know how people ought to behave in God’s family– that is, in the Church of the living God, which upholds the truth and keeps it safe. Without any doubt, the mystery of our religion is very deep indeed:

He was made visible in the flesh, attested by the Spirit,
seen by angels, proclaimed to the pagans, believed in by the world, taken up in glory.

Luke 7:31-35

Jesus said to the people:
‘What description can I find for the men of this generation? What are they like? They are like children shouting to one another while they sit in the market-place:

‘“We played the pipes for you, and you wouldn’t dance; we sang dirges,
and you wouldn’t cry.”

‘For John the Baptist comes, not eating bread, not drinking wine, and you say, “He is possessed.” The Son of Man comes, eating and drinking, and you say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” Yet Wisdom has been proved right by all her children.’
