Thursday of the Twenty-First Week in Ordinary Time

Readings of the Day
RB: Prologue 39-44
Mass: 1 Co 3:18-23; Resp Ps 24; Lk 5:1-11

To the Lord belongs the earth and all that fills it.

Today's reflection includes a photo taken this morning, with the brilliant blue sky I mentioned yesterday! Responsorial Psalm 24 goes nicely with it.

The Lord's are the earth and its fullness;
the world and those who dwell in it.
For he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers. 

Who can ascend the mountain of the Lord?
or who may stand in his holy place?
He whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
who desires not what is vain.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
a reward from God his savior.
Such is the race that seeks for him,
that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.

Remember the more you give yourselves to others, the more you will receive and be happy!
(Pope Francis, Twitter, September 6, 2018)
