Saturday Fourth Week Ordinary Time

Luke 12:6-7: Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Heavenly Father, you already know our heart. You know where we struggle with sin; please empower and forgive us. You know our fears; please give confidence and strengthen us. You know our immaturity; please nurture and mature us. You know our weakness and disease, please comfort and heal us. Holy God, We are both overwhelmed and comforted that you know us and love us. Thank you! In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 6:30-34)
Herod had appreciated and feared John the Baptist as a great prophet and servant of God. John, however did not fear to admonish Herod for his adulterous relationship with his brother's wife. John ended up in prison for the reason of Herodias' jealousy. Herod, out of impulse and a wish to please his family and friends, had John beheaded. When Herod heard the fame of Jesus he thought that John the Baptist, whom he had beheaded, had come back from the dead. Sorry to say that for Herod, he could not rid himself of sin by ridding himself of the man who met him with his sin. He could take a strong stand on the wrong things when he knew the right. Such a stand, though, was a sign of weakness and weakness. The Lord gives grace to the meek, to those who acknowledge their sins and who seek God's mercy and pardon. His grace and pardon not only frees us from an accountable conscience, it enables us to follow holiness in thought and action as well. God's grace enables us to fight fear with faith and to overcome the attraction to compromise goodness and truth with wrongdoing and dishonesty. Do we rely on God's grace and help to choose his way of holiness and to refuse whatever would conciliation our faith and faithfulness to Christ?
