SAINT WENCESLAUS; SAINT LAWRENCE RUIZ AND COMPANIONS
Readings of the day: RB 7:19-23Mass: Haggai 1:1-8; Resp. Psalm 149; Luke 9:7-9
When thinking about Herod the Tetrarch the first thing that came to mind was Psalm 1: “Blessed the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the company with scoffers.” Then I read Pope Francis’ tweet for today: “Encountering Jesus can give a decisive direction to our life, filling it with meaning.” Herod encountered Jesus; he encountered John the Baptist.
What direction do I take when I encounter Jesus?

The LORD knows the way of the just, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.
SAINT WENCESLAUS; SAINT LAWRENCE RUIZ AND COMPANIONS,PRAY FOR US.
