About Today Readings

St Albert The Great.
Philemon 7-20. Psalm 145(146):7-10. Luke 17:20-25.

Blest are they whose help is the God of Jacob – Psalm 145(146):7-10.

‘I have received much joy and encouragement by your love.’

‘When is the kingdom of God coming?’ By his question, the Pharisee showed his lack of understanding and an unwillingness to accept Jesus’ teaching. Jesus had spoken many times about the kingdom of God being present in the here and now.

This is the same message we hear in the gospels today and see in the lives of people of good faith. It is what enables us to face life’s difficulties, trusting that God is in it with us. Are we sometimes like the Pharisee looking for the wrong signs? Are we looking for something spectacular to happen rather than responding to the kingdom deep in our own hearts?
