About Today Readings

St Stanislaus Kostka.
Titus 2: 1-8, 11-14. Psalm 36(37):3-4, 18, 23, 27, 29. Luke 17:7-10.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord – Psalm 36(37):3-4, 18, 23, 27, 29.

‘God’s grace has been revealed to save the whole human race.’

Today’s readings help us live a good life. Paul tells Titus how to instruct the men and women in his communities, and for Titus himself to lead by example. In the psalm, we are told that if we put our trust in God, and make God our joy, God will give us our heart’s desire. In the gospel, Jesus teaches us about humble service.

Our world is very different from the world Luke describes, although there are many people who even today don’t know freedom. Jesus showed an unreserved love for all, slave and free alike. We are called to share in this work, to challenge the oppressive structures that cause poverty.
