Wednesday Of Week 10 In Ordinary Time


Wednesday Of Week 10 In Ordinary Time

1 Kings 18:20-39
Psalm 15(16):1-2,4-5,8,11
Matthew 5:17-19

In the first reading from the first Book of Kings, “Elijah appealed to all the people and said, How long will you straddle the issue?  If the LORD is God, follow him; if Baal, follow him.” The people, however, did not answer him.” 

However, unlike the silent Israelites who did not answer Elijah, we have been blessed with the presence of Christ in our lives and can follow his example and proclaim his teachings. 

Like the virgins before the wedding feast who had brought enough oil to trim their lamps, we can pray and focus on the good that we are each capable of as opposed to the evil that tempts us at every turn. 

Through our faithful lives, we have the opportunity to be prepared to face the challenges and temptations of the potential evil that surrounds us. With conscious attentiveness to the godliness of our own decisions we can ourselves someday be “called greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.   


O Merciful God, when there is no one to help, when there is no place to run to, be my Refuge and my place of safety. Rescue me from the snares of the foes and save me from the manipulation of the evil ones, that I may praise You forever. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Fr Joseph Osho

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
