On Today’s Gospel

Posted: October 28, 2021 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

In today’s Gospel dear Jesus I imagine you calling me unto You. To be Your light in the world. To bring hope to those who have none. To bring about Your healing as I lay my hands over those who want to be healed physically as well as spiritually. Most importantly to share the joy of the Gospel which brings life to all who will listen.

For I am one with You as You O Lord are one with me. I stand with Your saints to praise, honour and worship You all the days of my life.

Lord I need not imagine for You have called me and set me apart through my baptism to be your light in the world and to be a saint, that is to be Holy as You are Holy. Amen alleluia!

Saints Simon and Jude pray for us…

First reading

Ephesians 2:19-22 ·

In Christ you are no longer aliens, but citizens like us

You are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God’s household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone. As every structure is aligned on him, all grow into one holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.


Luke 6:12-16

Jesus chooses his twelve apostles

Jesus went out into the hills to pray; and he spent the whole night in prayer to God. When day came he summoned his disciples and picked out twelve of them; he called them ‘apostles’: Simon whom he called Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot who became a traitor.
