On Today’s Gospel

Posted: October 6, 2022 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

In a different light today’s reading is reminding us that every Eucharistic Celebration and community prayer meeting that we attend must change us from within. For we have Jesus, present with and within us! We all should already be living lives in the Spirit prophesying, healing, sharing words of wisdom, knowledge even deliverance. For it is by faith that we step out to do all these according to His Will for us.

Every day is an opportunity to Glorify the Lord by our lives and if we lack anything in doing so, we should simply pray persistently with all our heart. For the Lord our God promises us when He said, “How much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’”

Thank You loving Father, thank You Jesus, thank You Holy Spirit. I have received, I am empowered, and I will go! Amen Alleluia!

First reading

Galatians 3:1-5 ·

You received the Spirit because you believed what was preached

Are you people in Galatia mad? Has someone put a spell on you, in spite of the plain explanation you have had of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ? Let me ask you one question: was it because you practised the Law that you received the Spirit, or because you believed what was preached to you? Are you foolish enough to end in outward observances what you began in the Spirit? Have all the favours you received been wasted? And if this were so, they would most certainly have been wasted. Does God give you the Spirit so freely and work miracles among you because you practise Law, or because you believed what was preached to you?



Luke 11:5-13

Ask, and it will be given to you

Jesus said to his disciples:

    ‘Suppose one of you has a friend and goes to him in the middle of the night to say, “My friend, lend me three loaves, because a friend of mine on his travels has just arrived at my house and I have nothing to offer him”; and the man answers from inside the house, “Do not bother me. The door is bolted now, and my children and I are in bed; I cannot get up to give it you.” I tell you, if the man does not get up and give it him for friendship’s sake, persistence will be enough to make him get up and give his friend all he wants.

    ‘So I say to you: Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For the one who asks always receives; the one who searches always finds; the one who knocks will always have the door opened to him. What father among you would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread? Or hand him a snake instead of a fish? Or hand him a scorpion if he asked for an egg? If you then, who are evil, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’
