About Today Readings

St Joseph Pignatelli.
Titus 3:1-7. Psalm 22(23). Luke 17:11-19.

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want – Psalm 22(23).

‘When the kindness and love of God our Saviour for humanity were revealed, it was not because of any upright actions we had done ourselves.’

Luke tells us that one of the men, finding himself cured, turned back praising God and, prostrating himself, thanked Jesus. This passage is about gratitude. One side of the coin is showing gratitude, the other is failure to show it. In any relationship, recognising the need for gratitude and saying thanks enhances the connection.

The most important relationship for us to nurture is our relationship with our creator God through Jesus. Expressing gratitude brings joy to both the receiver and the giver. Gratitude is a fundamental practice which helps bring us closer to God through Jesus.
