The Kingdom of heaven is at hand

Greetings on this the Wednesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: HOS 10:1-3, 7-8, 12; PS 105:2-3, 4-5, 6-7; MT 10:1-7
Notes: A beautiful readings with the gospel portion today.
Speaks completely of the mission of the Good News.

To proclaim:

  • The Face of the Lord upon us.
  • Piety (reverence).
  • To be found, those who are lost.
  • Justice.
  • Drive away unclean spirits.
  • Cure every disease.
  • Heal every illness.

He sent, He sends:

  1. He sent twelve.
  2. He sent seventy-two.
  3. He sends us.

This kingdom coming is real and present. We see the opposite in many places and in many ways but be attentive to the good. And see the Lord breaking through.

First reading
An emphasis on conversion.

“Sow for yourselves justice,
reap the fruit of piety; break up for yourselves a new field, for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain down justice upon you.”

Responsorial Psalm
Seek always the face of the Lord.

Alleluia Verse
The Kingdom of God is at hand:
repent and believe in the Gospel.

Sing to him, sing his praise,
proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
Glory in his holy name; rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!

Gospel Portion
Jesus summoned his Twelve disciples
and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness.

Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
