On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: September 29, 2017 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


How wonderful it would be to sing with the angels and the heavenly hosts on High, Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God the most High!

And so each and everyone of us has been assigned a guardian angel to help us on our journey into Holiness. Such a shame if we do heed their soft promptings or recognise their presence in our lives. Then there are God’s Archangels whom He has been sent through His mighthy power and grace St Michael “who is like God” St Gabriel “God’s strength” and St Raphael “God’s remedy” who paved the way of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ who reigns with God our Father and the Holy Spirit.

Let us rejoice for the Risen Lord has saved us from the clutches of death, so that one day soon we will sing in one voice with the angels and saints to the Glory of our triune God. Amen

St Michael, St Gabriel, St Raphael pray for us…

First reading
Daniel 7:9-10,13-14

As I watched:

Thrones were set in place
and one of great age took his seat. His robe was white as snow, the hair of his head as pure as wool.
His throne was a blaze of flames, its wheels were a burning fire.
A stream of fire poured out,
issuing from his presence.
A thousand thousand waited on him, ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.
A court was held and the books were opened.

And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven, one like a son of man. He came to the one of great age and was led into his presence.
On him was conferred sovereignty, glory and kingship, and men of all peoples, nations and languages became his servants.
His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty which shall never pass away, nor will his empire ever be destroyed.

Gospel
John 1:47-51

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There is an Israelite who deserves the name, incapable of deceit.’ ‘How do you know me?’ said Nathanael. ‘Before Philip came to call you,’ said Jesus ‘I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel.’ Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.’ And then he added ‘I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and, above the Son of Man, the angels of God ascending and descending.’
