Readings
    Wordle: Readings 10-28-13
  • Eph 2:19-22  You're no longer strangers but in God's household.  In Christ you're being built into a temple for God.
  • Ps 19:2-5  "Their message goes out through all the earth."  The heavens declare God's glory,
  • Lk 6:12-16  Jesus prayed, then called 12 Apostles to himself.

Reflections
    • Pope Francis to media pros:  Don't flinch in the face of tech challenges.  Play like a team:  create bonds; come together; share resources.  Serve professionally.
    • RC.net:  Lord uses ordinary people for greatness.  How do I respond?  What keeps me from giving myself unreservedly?
    • Creighton:  We're part of the Christian family, called with the apostles to follow Christ, declare God's glory, share responsibility in the household.

    Music
    BTW, when looking for more hymns to fit the readings, I check Hymnary's scripture index.
