About Today Readings

1 Corinthians 11:17-26, 33. Psalm 39(40):7-10, 17. Luke 7:1-10.

Proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes again—Psalm 39(40):7-10, 17.

‘Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof.’

Paul speaks of the Eucharist as the place where we proclaim the Passion of Our Lord until he comes.

He speaks of the lack of charity in the celebrations of the Eucharist in Corinth. He goes as far as to say that if we are ignoring the needs of the poorer members, we are not really having a Eucharist at all.

Jesus, Lord, send us your Holy Spirit so that we know you in the breaking of bread as well as in the faces of those brothers and sisters to whom you have sent us.
