OCTOBER 10, 2011

Rom 1:1-7 / Ps 98:1, 2-3, 3-4 / Lk 11:29-32

ROMANS 1:1-7
From Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, an apostle called and set apart
for God's Good News, the very promises he foretold through his
prophets in the sacred Scriptures, regarding his Son, who was born in
the flesh a descendant of David, and has been recognized as the Son of
God endowed with Power, upon rising from the dead through the Holy
Spirit. Through him, Jesus Christ, our Lord, and for the sake of his
Name, we received grace and mission in all the nations, for them to
accept the faith. All of you, the elected of Christ, are part of them,
you, the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy: May God our
Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, give you grace and peace.

LUKE 11:29-32
As the crowd increased, Jesus began to speak in this way, "People of
the present time are evil people. They ask for a sign, but no sign
will be given to them except the sign of Jonah. As Jonah became a sign
for the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of Man be a sign for this
generation. The Queen of the South will rise up on Judgment Day with
the people of these times and accuse them, for she came from the ends
of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and here there is greater
than Solomon. The people of Nineveh will rise up on Judgment Day with
the people of these times and accuse them, for Jonah's preaching made
them turn from their sins, and here there is greater than Jonah."

"How evil are the people of this day!" While we ponder on these words
of our Lord spoken more than 2,000 years ago, we realize that we
cannot ignore the truth of this statement even to this day. Our
Christian faith simply has to be rooted in the realities of our day to
day living. Deep down, in as much as we believe people are basically
good, we also know people can be evil too. These are the truths of our

God constantly reminds us of the need to see our evil ways and make
amends. Many times He sends His message across to us in our time of
prayer and reflection, in people we meet and in our particular
circumstance and experience in life.

Lord, many times in prayer, we find ourselves asking you to make
things happen for us. We cling to your promise that all things are
possible with you. Forgive us for the times we pray to ask you to
provide for what we want and not pray to be provided with what you
want for us.

We pray …
