Wednesday of the Twenty-Ninth Week in Ordinary Time

Saint John of Capistrano (1386-1456)

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 18:7-11
Mass: Rm 6:12-18; Resp Ps 124; Lk 12:39-48

Our help is in the name of the Lord.

Mass today begins with this Entrance Antiphon: "O chosen people, proclaim the mighty works of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." What is one way you will proclaim the mighty works of the God who loves you? For encouragement, please join me in reflecting on our reading from Morning Prayer, taken from 1 Peter 4:8-11. Let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

As we celebrate the Extraordinary Missionary Month, we ask the Holy Spirit to enable us to open the doors of the Gospel to all peoples and to be authentic witnesses of divine love.
