Wordle: Readings 10-18-13Readings

  • 2 Tm 4:10-17b  Only Luke remains.  Others deserted me, but the Lord stood by me, so that through me all might hear.
  • Ps 145:10-13, 17-18  "Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom."  Let your works tell of your glory, might, eternal Kingdom.  Lord is just. holy, near.
  • Lk 10:1-9  Jesus sent 72 disciples in pairs like lambs among wolves: “The harvest is abundant but laborers few.  Go cure the sick; travel light.  Say, ‘God's Kingdom is at hand.’"
Reflections
  • Pope Francis 10/17 homily:  Prayer is the key that opens door to faith.  If you don't pray, your knowledge of Jesus can become Jesus-free ideology that chases people away.  Praying ≠ saying prayers; speak with Jesus heart to heart. 
    • Creighton:  Luke, patron of physicians, artists, students...   Journey with God and receive strength.  Recognize God in our lives; share.
      • RC.net:  May the gospel transform me that I may spread your truth and love.
