On Today’s Gospel

Posted: October 28, 2022 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Ever since last week, when I asked the Lord for a Word to share with the participants going through the Pathways Choices series, He has put this on my heart for me as well.  I believe He also wants you His saints to know this. To be encouraged and to be emboldened to share His love with all you meet.

But now thus says the Lord,

    he who created you, he who formed you,

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;

    I have called you by name, you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;

    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;

when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,

    and the flame shall not consume you.

For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One, your Saviour.

Because you are precious in my sight, and honoured, and I love you. (Isaiah 43:1-4)

Saints Simon and Jude till we are all reunited in Heaven, pray for us…Amen


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.
