Day of Penance.
Romans 7:18-25. Psalm 118(119):66, 68, 76-77, 93-94. Luke 12:54-59.
Teach me your laws, O Lord — Psalm 118(119):66, 68, 76-77, 93-94.
‘Why not judge for yourselves…?’
In this wonderful reading from Luke, Jesus is speaking about discerning the time. The Law of Navigation: Jesus helps listeners interpret the times. Like all good leaders, Jesus left his followers with a plan for the future and gave them some key tools, including these: Lenses. He modelled the right attitude to approach the future. A road map. He warned them about rough roads ahead. A barometer. He helped them interpret future conditions.
To act we need to discover God’s will and obey it. We need to find our talent and share it. We need to be tenacious and finish well!
