On Today’s Gospel

Posted: October 14, 2022 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

The endearing love of God our Father for us, has set us free through His Son our Lord Jesus Christ to live in the power of His resurrection. We have sealed with the Holy Spirit the promise of our inheritance. We are His children and shall make His glory known!

Living a life in the Spirit what have we to fear? Evil and sin has no hold over us for the victory belongs to Christ Jesus our Lord. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Rm 14:8

Fear is only for those who choose to remain in sin!

Now if you are unwilling to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve; but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Jos 24:15) Amen

Saint Callistus pray for us…


First reading

Ephesians 1:11-14 ·

You have been stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit

It is in Christ that we were claimed as God’s own,

chosen from the beginning,

under the predetermined plan of the one who guides all things

as he decides by his own will;

chosen to be, for his greater glory,

the people who would put their hopes in Christ before he came.

Now you too, in him,

have heard the message of the truth and the good news of your salvation,

and have believed it;

and you too have been stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit of the Promise,

the pledge of our inheritance which brings freedom for those whom God has taken for his own, to make his glory praised.



Luke 12:1-7

Not one sparrow is forgotten in God’s sight

The people had gathered in their thousands so that they were treading on one another. And Jesus began to speak, first of all to his disciples. ‘Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees – that is, their hypocrisy. Everything that is now covered will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear. For this reason, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in hidden places will be proclaimed on the housetops.

    ‘To you my friends I say: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. I will tell you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has the power to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Can you not buy five sparrows for two pennies? And yet not one is forgotten in God’s sight. Why, every hair on your head has been counted. There is no need to be afraid: you are worth more than hundreds of sparrows.’
