Readings

Wordle: Readings 2-26-14
  • Jas 4:13-17  You're a puff of smoke; you have no idea about tomorrow.  Say, “if God wills, we'll live...”  It's a sin to know the right thing to do and not do it.
  • Ps 49:2-3, 6-11  "Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!"  Nobody can redeem himself; the wise and stupid all die.
  • Mk 9:38-40  John / Jesus, “We tried to prevent someone from driving out demons in your name because he doesn't follow us.” / “Don't; whoever isn't against us is for us.”
Pope Francis
  • Angelus:  Anointing of the Sick expresses God’s merciful presence to the sick, suffering, and aged.  Our Lord has tender concern for those who suffer; through this anointing, the Church brings them God’s healing presence and accompanies us in facing suffering and death.  In a culture that often refuses to speak of these realities, recognize the beauty of this sacrament and appreciate the presence of the Lord Jesus, who strengthens us in faith and hope, and reminds us that nothing can separate us from his saving love.
Reflections
    • Creighton:  Trust in Jesus’ presence and care; don't worry about control.
    • Passionist:  Let's not choose sides or judge but rather work together for justice and peace. 
    • Universalis:  St. Alexander of Alexandria, bishop, catechist, fought Arianism.
