WEDNESDAY, 22nd Week in Ordinary Time
September 6, 2017 - WEDNESDAY, 22nd Week in Ordinary Time
Col: 1 - 8 / Lk 4: 38- 44
From the 1ST READING: Col: 3b- 6
We constantly pray for you, for we have known of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints. Indeed you await in hope the inheritance reserved for you in heaven, of which you have heard through the word of truth. This Gospel, already present among you, is bearing fruit and growing throughout the world, as it did among you from the day you accepted it and understood the gift of God in all its truth.
GOSPEL READING: Lk 4: 38- 44
Leaving the synagogue, Jesus went to the house of Simon. His mother-in law was suffering from a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. Bending over her, he rebuked the fever; and it left her. Immediately she got up and waited on them.
At sunset, people suffering from many kinds of sickness were brought to Jesus. Laying his hands on each one, he healed them. Demons were driven out, howling as they departed from their victims., "You are the Son of God!" He rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, for they knew he was the Messiah.
In the first reading Paul commends the strong faith of the early Christians. In the Gospel reading we see a typical day of preaching, healing and driving out of demons and unclean spirits in the public ministry of Jesus.
Though we have become new creations by God's grace in our baptism, our faith is challenged by the world and its prevailing values. There are many prevalent practices and beliefs contrary to Gospel values.
Paul reminds us to guard our faith, to be confident in our hope and to be loving of God and our neighbor.
We pray that we may not be swayed by the world around us, that we may not stray from the ways of the Lord, and that our faith, hope and love may always be with the Lord.
WE PRAY FOR MTQ DAILY PRAYER INTENTIONS:
NORTH PARK (SINCE 1994)
For the healing and recovery of Caesar Lacson.
Finally, we pray for one another, for those who have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.
Have a good day!
