About Today Readings

St Josaphat.
Titus 1:1-9. Psalm 23(24):1-6. Luke 17:1-6.

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face – Psalm 23(24):1-6.

‘Grace and peace from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Saviour.’

Paul is espousing all the qualities one must have in order to be a follower or disciple of Jesus. If Titus is to carry out the work of the church in Crete, then he needs guidance. ‘He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered. He must be hospitable and love what is good. He must be self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.’

If we are to spread the Good News, we would do well to aspire to possessing these qualities. Let us pray then for God’s grace to accept our faults and failings and for the courage to change the things we can, so that like Titus, we too, can make our world a better place.
