A Day of Proper Thanksgiving To God For His Mercy and His Love.
The Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost (and the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary). Try To Spend One Whole Day Giving Thanks To Our One True Savior.
Vic Biorseth, Sunday, August 22, 2021
In the beginning as in the end, nobody is going anywhere worth going without their Lord and God Jesus Christ.
From today's Latin Mass readings,
Lesson from the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Galatians
Brethren: The promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. He does not say, And to his offsprings, as of many; but as of one, And to your offspring, Who is Christ. Now I mean this: The Law which was made four hundred and thirty years later does not annul the covenant which was ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. For if the right to inherit be from the Law, it is no longer from a promise. But God gave it to Abraham by promise. What then was the Law? It was enacted on account of transgressions, being delivered by angels through a mediator, until the offspring should come to whom the promise was made. Now there is no intermediary where there is only one; but God is one. Is the Law then contrary to the promises of God? By no means. For if a law had been given that could give life, justice would truly be from the Law. But the Scriptures shut up all things under sin, that by the faith of Jesus Christ the promise might be given to those who believe.
R. Thanks be to God.
Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
At that time, Jesus was going to Jerusalem, He was passing between Samaria and Galilee. And as He was entering a certain village, there He met ten lepers, who stood afar off and lifted up their voice, crying, Jesus, Master, have pity on us. And when He saw them He said, Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass as they were on their way, that they were made clean. But one of them, seeing that he was made clean, returned, with a loud voice glorifying God, and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks; and he was a Samaritan. But Jesus answered and said, Were not the ten made clean? But where are the nine? Has no one been found to return and give glory to God, except this foreigner? And He said to him, Arise, go your way, for your faith has saved you.
R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.
And, lifted from our Church Bulletin today,
Attitude of Gratitude -”But where are the other 9?”
Today’s gospel is the healing of the ten lepers. The
Church’s purpose in selecting this true event is two
fold. We marvel at the infinite mercy of God who
has compassion on all men regardless of race or
creed. How great He is and how much He loves us!
Yet we also see in this event the depths of ingratitude we as humans can sink. This story is not an isolated incident in the Gospels. Most of those who
were miraculously cured by Jesus forgot to thank
Him. However, in today’s Gospel there was at least
one man who came back with an attitude of gratitude. Only one man out of ten had the decency to
express his gratitude for a new lease on life. This
moved Our Lord to commend him for this small act
of thankfulness which was so graciously accepted.
Are we like him or are we one of the nine who forget
all about He who gave us new life?
How often have we spoken about the majority set against God and His Church? He, and we, are assailed on every side by those who do not recognize the gift they have been given, and even more those who reject it and deny it's authenticity, and deny its Divine Author.
The Truth is surrounded by lies.
Our whole nation today is led by and governed by liars and cheats.
Are we among them, or are we truly thankful, and bowing before the Truth?
Try to spend one whole day in thanksgiving in reparation for all those who will not. Perhaps our example will move others to recognize the lies, and more importantly, to recognize the Truth, for Who He Is.
"... But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?" [Luke 18:8]
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
