Feast of Saint Luke
October 18, 2017
Readings of the day: RB 14Mass: 2 Timothy 4:10-17b; Resp. Psalm 145; Luke 10:1-9
Demas succumbed to the trappings of the world; Crescens preferred Galatia; Titus, Dalmatia. Alexander the coppersmith was nothing but trouble. Paul, although deserted by his companions, reminds us of something very important: “The Lord stood by me and gave me strength.” People are fickle; Jesus isn’t. The Lord will never abandon us.Please God, may we never forget the words of the psalmist:The Lord is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
SAINT LUKE, PRAY FOR US.
