Feast-Saint Luke, evangelist

Psalm 27:14: Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we know you have waited for us so many times - for us to show our faith, repent of our sins, produce holiness, come to you in prayer. Help us as we wait for you to show us the way with our decisions, to act to reduce our need, and to reveal your presence in our loneliness. We really look for you with all our heart. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Meditation on Today's Gospel:
Seventy was an important number in biblical times. Moses selected seventy elders to help him in the task of leading the people through the wilderness. In Jesus’ times seventy was held to be the figure of nations throughout the world. Jesus specially made the seventy to a two-fold task: to speak in Jesus name and to act by his power. Jesus gave them directions for how they were to carry out their service. They must go and serve as people without cunning, full of charity and peace, and straightforwardness. They must give their full attention to the declaration of God’s kingdom and not be unfocused by other minor things. They must travel light - only take what was essential and leave behind whatever would divert them – in order to concentrate on the task of speaking the word of the God. They must do their work, not for what they can get out of it, but for what they can give generously to others, without getting reward or payment. “Poverty” frees us from greed and worry with possessions and makes plenty room for God’s provision. The Lord wants his disciples to be reliant on him and not on themselves. Loving Infant Jesus, may the joy and truth of the gospel change our life that we may witness it to those around us. Grant that we may extend your truth and your light wherever we go.
