On Today’s Gospel

Posted: September 26, 2018 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Be content in the Lord and you will have all that you need. For yourself, family and in the service of your brethren.

For it is unfettered desires, wants that burns like a wild fire. That leads us to sin and misery.

As we go out into the world to proclaim and share the joy of the Gospel. Let us carry only what we need… Jesus!

Jesus my Lord, You alone are my strength, my salvation, my everything. Be the Lord of my life now and forever. Amen

First reading

Proverbs 30:5-9
Give me neither riches nor poverty, only my share

Every word of God is unalloyed, he is the shield of those who take refuge in him.
To his words make no addition, lest he reprove you and know you for a fraud.

Two things I beg of you,do not grudge me them before I die:keep falsehood and lies far from me,give me neither poverty nor riches, grant me only my share of bread to eat, for fear that surrounded by plenty, I should fall away and say, ‘the Lord – who is the Lord?’ or else, in destitution, take to stealing and profane the name of my God.

Gospel

Luke 9:1-6
‘Take nothing for the journey’

Jesus called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. He said to them, ‘Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and let none of you take a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave, let it be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as a sign to them.’ So they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the Good News and healing everywhere.
