1 Timothy 6:2c-12/Psalm 49/ Luke 8:1-3
“There were women with them who provided for them out of their means.” Today’s Gospel presents us with women who were part of Christ’s ministry. Some of these women witnessed to the episode on Mount Calvary, they were present at his burial and they saw the Risen Lord. They gave their resources and cared for Christ’s ministry. Many women (Religious Nun and lay) are still very much supportive today. Their care must not be misunderstood or attacked. Beloved, we must not cease to promote the Good News through our availability, collaboration and resources. Lastly, in the words of St. Paul in the first reading we must continue to aim at righteouness.
LET US PRAY
Almighty God, our Creator and Guide, may we serve you with all our hearts, minds and actions. Help us to use your gifts in our lives to serve you better and to promote your Kingdom. Teach us to be available for mission and to support missionary works. Amen.
