Greetings on this the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Readings: Wis 18:6-9; Ps 33:1, 12, 18-19, 20-22; Heb 11:1-2, 8-19; Lk 12:32-48
Notes: The Lord, Our God, is pleased to give us His Kingdom.

There are appropriate and inappropriate responses. For a people of faith the response is faith. And its power is in the faithfulness we return to Him.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not be afraid any longer, little flock,
for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.

First reading
For in secret the holy children of the good were offering sacrifice and putting into effect with one accord the divine institution.

Responsorial Psalm
Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him, upon those who hope for his kindness, To deliver them from death and preserve them in spite of famine.

Second reading
Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.
Because of it the ancients were well attested.

Alleluia Verse
Stay awake and be ready!
For you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

Gospel Portion
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not be afraid any longer, little flock,
for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.

What is your response?

The ideal response is to reflect back and out the same such love to Him and to all.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
