Tuesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time


Heavenly Father, thank you that you are always steady than the ground on which we stand, more lasting than the mountain peaks we admire, and most constant than the waves upon the oceans that we love. We trust our life and our future and soul with you. We want to please you in the way we live. We want our life to be marked by reliable faithfulness to you. In the name of Infant Jesus we ask this prayer. Amen.
  WORD OF THE DAY ...

Tuesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Gospel: Matthew 18:1-5,10,12-14
  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 18:1-5,10,12-14)
In today’s Gospel Jesus' tells story about a lost sheep and tell us concerning God and his kingdom. Shepherds usually counted their sheep at the evening of the day to make sure all were accounted for. Since sheep through their very nature are very social, an isolated sheep can rapidly become bewildered and yet fearful. The shepherd's grief and worry is turned to joy when he finds the missing sheep and restores it to the fold. What is new in Jesus' teaching is the example that sinners must be sought out and not just mourned for. God does not celebrate in the loss of anyone, but desires that all be saved and restored to companionship with him. That is why the whole group of people of heaven rejoices when one sinner is found and returned to fellowship with God. Seekers of the missing are much needed today. Do we pray and seek after those we know who have lost their way to God?
