SS. Simon and Jude

October 28, 2013:   SS. Simon and Jude, apostles, feast 

    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.

    • 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.

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


    • "Houses" tie: we're members of God's household (1st reading)
    • "Person kneeling in prayer" tie bar:  Jesus prayed before calling the apostles (gospel); praying publican (yesterday's gospel)
    • "Telephone" tie bar:  Jesus "called" the apostles, calls us (gospel)
    Airplane tie pin:  "Their message goes out through all the earth" (psalm)
    Dress your life!
