About Today Readings

Psalter Week I. 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Isaiah 45:1, 4-6. Psalm 95(96):1, 3-5, 7-10. 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5. Matthew 22:15-21.

Give the Lord glory and honour — Psalm 95(96):1, 3-5, 7-10.

‘Give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.’

Significant people opposed Jesus. They seemed unwilling to hear the Good News he brought them, or to acknowledge his miracles or his compassionate dealings with needy people. This encounter may cause us as members of God’s people to think once again on our duties as citizens.

However, for prayer today, we may be helped more by Paul’s words to the people of Thessalonica which draw us to gratitude for the faith in action we see daily in good people and for our awareness of God’s love for us
