On Today’s Gospel

Posted: October 13, 2018 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Jesus came for everyone. Yet many in their minds have made distinctions and have divided all accordingly. Catholic, protestant, Muslim, Jew, Atheist, free thinkers and so on. Who then is not a child of God our Father? Are they any not created in His likeness and image? Who then do you see in them?

There in only one loving and merciful God who desires that we all be saved, That is why He gave us His only begotten Son. The Word made flesh who came to dwell among us. Indeed happy are those who hear Word of God and keep it.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord, may we all be united and One in Him. Amen

First reading

Galatians 3:22-29

Scripture makes no exceptions when it says that sin is master everywhere. In this way the promise can only be given through faith in Jesus Christ and can only be given to those who have this faith.
Before faith came, we were allowed no freedom by the Law; we were being looked after till faith was revealed. The Law was to be our guardian until the Christ came and we could be justified by faith. Now that that time has come we are no longer under that guardian, and you are, all of you, sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. All baptised in Christ, you have all clothed yourselves in Christ, and there are no more distinctions between Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female, but all of you are one in Christ Jesus. Merely by belonging to Christ you are the posterity of Abraham, the heirs he was promised.

Gospel

Luke 11:27-28
‘Happy the womb that bore you and the breasts you sucked!’

As Jesus was speaking, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said, ‘Happy the womb that bore you and the breasts you sucked!’ But he replied, ‘Still happier those who hear the word of God and keep it!’
