    1 Timothy 6:2c-12...

    This is what you are to teach and urge. Anyone who teaches anything different and does not keep to the sound teaching which is that of our Lord Jesus Christ, the doctrine which is in accordance with true religion, is proud and has no understanding, but rather a weakness for questioning everything and arguing about words. All that can come of this is jealousy, contention, abuse and evil mistrust; and unending disputes by people who are depraved in mind and deprived of truth, and imagine that religion is a way of making a profit. Religion, of course, does bring large profits, but only to those who are content with what they have. We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it; but as long as we have food and clothing, we shall be content with that. People who long to be rich are a prey to trial; they get trapped into all sorts of foolish and harmful ambitions which plunge people into ruin and destruction. ‘The love of money is the root of all evils’ and there are some who, pursuing it, have wandered away from the faith and so given their souls any number of fatal wounds. But, as someone dedicated to God, avoid all that. You must aim to be upright and religious, filled with faith and love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith and win the eternal life to which you were called and for which you made your noble profession of faith before many witnesses.


    Gospel

    Luke 8:1-3...
    22/09/2017

    Jesus made his way through towns and villages preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. With him went the Twelve, as well as certain women who had been cured of evil spirits and ailments: Mary surnamed the Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, Joanna the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their own resources.

    During his public ministry Jesus had both male and female followers; this shows that all have equal status and dignity in the sight of God. Many women followed Jesus and ministered to him and his followers during his public ministry. It is in this spirit that many women took the radical step of leaving their homes and boldly following Jesus in religious commitment. They took up the mission of Jesus as their own; some of them worked even in the most trying circumstances. Do I appreciate women religious? Do we treat them as God’s chosen vessels? Do we encourage our children to follow their footsteps and become disciples of Jesus?

Thoughts

 22/09/2017 The intensity of a love that is constant, humble, quiet and productive, leads us to worry more for others rather than for ourselves. When one has this love, the soul lives a wholesome interior life, a wholesome union of life (PrP, VIII, p. 114).
