Friday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Today’s Gospel see Jesus asserted his power and authority to cast out demons as a clear demonstration of the reign of God. Jesus' reference to the 'finger of God' points back to Moses' argument with Pharoah and his magicians who represented Satan and the kingdom of darkness. Jesus claims to be carrying on the tradition of Moses whose miracles freed the Israelites from oppression by the finger of God. God's power is clearly at work in the exorcisms which Jesus performed and they give evidence that God's kingdom has come. Some of the Jewish leaders reacted fervently to Jesus' healings and exorcisms and they opposed him with malicious slander. How could Jesus get the power and authority to release individuals from Satan's influence and control? They assumed that he had to be in league with Satan. They credited his power to Satan rather than to God. Jesus answers their charge with two arguments. There were many exorcists in Palestine in Jesus' time. So Jesus retorted by saying that they also cause to look guilty their own kin who cast out demons. If they condemn Jesus they also condemn themselves.
Word of the Day...
Psalm 62:8Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Prayer ...
Loving Father and Holy God, You alone are our refuge and strength. We trust these confessions with you and ask that you strengthen us by the power of your Holy Spirit to not fall into these same traps again and again. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
