September 22

September 22, 2013:  25th Sunday, Ordinary Time 

Readings
  • Am 8:4-7  You who cheat and destroy the poor,  Lord won't forget!

    Wordle: Readings 9-22-13
  • Ps 113:1-2, 4-8 "Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor."  He raises up the lowly from the dunghill to seat them with princes.

  • 1 Tm 2:1-8  Pray, without anger, that everyone lead a tranquil life.  God wills everyone be saved and know truth.  There is one God, one mediator.

  • Lk 16:1-13 (or 10-13)  [Master fires, calls to account property-squandering steward.  Steward reduces debtors' IOUs, commended for prudence.  Make friends,] be trustworthy with dishonest wealth, others' property to be trusted with wealth, property.  As trustworthy/dishonest in small matters, so too in great ones.  You can't serve both God and mammon.”

Finally, since Kindspring's "small acts that change the world" tagline fits so well with today's gospel, I'm repeating the challenge I heard about from Fr. Chris and originally posted on September 10.  It's never too late...
