Wednesday 31st Week in Ordinary Time - Year I


Rom 13:8-10 / Ps 112: 1b-2. 4-5. 9 / Lk 14:25-33


Romans 13:8-10

Do not be in debt to anyone. Let this be the only debt of one to another: Love. The one who loves his or her neighbor fulfilled the Law. For the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not covet and whatever else are summarized in this one: You will love your neighbor as yourself. Love cannot do the neighbor any harm; so love fulfills the whole Law.


Luke 14:25-33

One day, when large crowds were walking along with Jesus, he turned and said to them, "If you come to me, unwilling to sacrifice your love for your father and mother, your spouse and children, your brothers and sisters, and indeed yourself, you cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not follow me, carrying his own cross, cannot be my disciple. Do you build a house without first sitting down to count the cost, to see whether you have enough to complete it? Otherwise, if you have laid the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone will make fun of you, 'This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.' And when a king wages war against another king, does he go to fight without first sitting down to consider whether his ten thousand can stand against the twenty thousand of his opponent? And if not, while the other is still a long way off, he sends messengers for peace talks. In the same way, none of you may become my disciple, if he doesn't give up everything he has.



The gospel message today is very strong. Jesus tells us to "sacrifice our love for our father, mother, wife, children….and even our own life too" in order to be his disciple. But this should not be taken literally. It is a very emphatic statement expressing the cost of being a true disciple of Jesus. The disciple follows his Master wherever He leads him, ready to tread the narrow road, trusting in God to take care of him always. even if he has to leave a life of comfort. At the end of the road, his reward will be truly great – the Master Himself waiting for him to share in His glory forever.
