Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 22, 2017
Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
In other years: Saint John Paul II (1920-2005)
Readings of the day: RB 18:1-6Mass: Isaiah 45:1,4-6; Resp. Psalm 96; 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5b; Luke 22:15-21
I tend to sit up straighter when I read, “Thus says the Lord.” Today, like all days, the words of the Lord are powerful—yet what God says to Cyrus, king of Persia, are awe-inspiring:
I am the Lord and there is no other, there is no God besides me!
The God who called Cyrus, giving him the title, “anointed;”the God who calls us by name and chose us to “shine like lights in the world.”
Almighty ever-living God,strengthen us in faith,grant us the grace to labor in love and endurancein hope of our Lord Jesus Christso that toward the rising and the setting of the sunpeople may know that there is none besides the Lord our God.Guard us as the apple of your eye; hide us in the shadow of your wings.
REPAY TO CAESAR WHAT BELONGS TO CAESARAND TO GOD WHAT BELONGS TO GOD.A Roman Denarius
GIVE THE LORD GLORY AND HONOR!
