On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: October 3, 2017 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


The deeper your relationship with the Lord, the more attractive you become. For His light shines upon your face. People will be drawn to the peace and joy they see in You. Be prepared then to lead them to Him.

Do not be afraid, angry or concerned about rejection for even the Lord knew He would be rejected and put to death. Instead stay focused and remain steadfast in doing God our Father’s Will.

May our Lord lift up His countenance upon us and give us peace. Amen

First reading
Zechariah 8:20-23

The Lord of Hosts says this: ‘There will be other peoples yet, and citizens of great cities. And the inhabitants of one city will go to the next and say, “Come, let us go and entreat the favour of the Lord, and seek the Lord of Hosts; I am going myself.” And many peoples and great nations will come to seek the Lord of Hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favour of the Lord.’
The Lord of Hosts says this: ‘In those days, ten men of nations of every language will take a Jew by the sleeve and say, “We want to go with you, since we have learnt that God is with you.”’

Gospel
Luke 9:51-56

As the time drew near for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely took the road for Jerusalem and sent messengers ahead of him. These set out, and they went into a Samaritan village to make preparations for him, but the people would not receive him because he was making for Jerusalem. Seeing this, the disciples James and John said, ‘Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to burn them up?’ But he turned and rebuked them, and they went off to another village.
