“Your Faith Has Saved You”


Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to post the Gospels on Sundays. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke  LK 17:11-19

As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem,
he traveled through Samaria and Galilee.
As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him.
They stood at a distance from him and raised their voices, saying,
“Jesus, Master!  Have pity on us!”
And when he saw them, he said,
“Go show yourselves to the priests.”
As they were going they were cleansed.
And one of them, realizing he had been healed,
returned, glorifying God in a loud voice;
and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him.
He was a Samaritan.
Jesus said in reply,
“Ten were cleansed, were they not?
Where are the other nine?
Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?”
Then he said to him, “Stand up and go;
your faith has saved you.”

The thanksgiving and praise that the Samaritan leper showed Jesus when he realized he was cleansed, in Luke’s Gospel, is originally translated from the Greek Gospels as the  word “Eucharist.”  Jews and Samaritans did not normally associate with one another, but the disease of leprosy obliterated any religious identity as they traveled together. All had to stand at a distance, even from Jesus to cry out to Him, addressing him as Master (epistates); which is a title Jesus’ disciples called Him.

The Gospel shows the presence of Gd’s Mercy alive and present in Jesus; the praise and thanksgiving that is due to God; the communion of walking with Him; and the inclusions of foreigners in God’s saving deeds.  [Reference below]

“Don’t Be Afraid; Just Believe”


Awhile back, the angels asked me to post on the Gospels on Sundays. With Love and complete gratitude, here is the Gospel of Mark 5: 21-43

When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake. 22 Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet. 23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” 24 So Jesus went with him.

A large crowd followed and pressed around him. 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”

31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ”

32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”

36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 But they laughed at him.

After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.


Nothing is impossible for God and Jesus. For the same Spirit that raised this little girl from the dead; and healed the woman with (12 years of!) hemorrhages is inside of all of us through God and Jesus, His Begotten Son. Jesus is saying to remember He is with you. Do not be afraid in anything you may be facing today, but lift all concern to him and to God; asking for their Divine Favor and Healing in any area of your life now and always! 


“I Have Come to Set the Earth on Fire, and How I Wish It Were Already Blazing..”


Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke LK 12:49-53
Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing! 
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished! 
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? 
No, I tell you, but rather division. 
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son
and a son against his father,
a mother against her daughter
and a daughter against her mother,
a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

When Jesus says, “I have come to set the earth on fire:” this has been interpreted to mean the “fire” of the Holy Spirit, which is a purifying fire that ignites our hearts and  sets our hearts “ablaze” in the path of the Spirit and love of righteousness; love of Christ and of God.  Along with wishing that the fire he came to bring were already blazing, Jesus is in anguish over the baptism which he is to be baptized; and is speaking of His Bitter Passion he is to accomplish. The basic meaning of baptism, is to be immersed or to be plunged deeply into something. The baptism Jesus is to go through, is his Passion and death. His passing is what is His Love for us is; that we all be reconciled through Him and through His Spirit, which we share now.  
In biblical times, if you followed Jesus, parents and families would “hand their loved ones over’ to the ‘authorities’; which the end result was casting them out of temples and even worse, to the point of death. Even now, we are called to choose the “Way and the Life” of Christ. Placing our old life behind us, our old ways, and asking God to set our hearts “ablaze” in the “Path of the Spirit.”

“I Am the Bread of Life; Whoever Comes To Me Will Never Hunger and Whoever Believes in Me Will Never Thirst.”

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospel Readings. With Love and Gratitude, here is the Gospel of John 6:22-51

The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left. 23* Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks. 24 When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. 25 And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” 26 Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life,*which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.”  28 So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.” 30 So they said to him, “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? 31* Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:n

‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

32 So Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

 34p So they said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”  35* Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst. 36 But I told you that although you have seen [me], you do not believe.  37 Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, 3because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. 39 And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it [on] the last day.  40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him [on] the last day.”u

41 The Jews murmured about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,” 42 and they said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know his father and mother? Then how can he say, ‘I have come down from heaven’? 43 Jesus answered and said to them, “Stop murmuring* among yourselves. 44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day.  It is written in the prophets:

‘They shall all be taught by God.’

Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.  4Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. 47 Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. 4I am the bread of life. 4Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died; 50 this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”a

“Ask and You Shall Receive, Seek and You Shall Find, Knock, and the Door Will be Opened….”

Jesus with child

Awhile back, the angels asked me to post the Gospels on Sundays. With Love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke  LK 11:1-13

Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished,
one of his disciples said to him,
“Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.” 
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us to the final test.”

And he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend
to whom he goes at midnight and says,
‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey
and I have nothing to offer him,’
and he says in reply from within,
‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked
and my children and I are already in bed. 
I cannot get up to give you anything.’
I tell you,
if he does not get up to give the visitor the loaves
because of their friendship,
he will get up to give him whatever he needs
because of his persistence.

“And I tell you, ask and you will receive;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks, receives;
and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 
What father among you would hand his son a snake
when he asks for a fish? 
Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? 
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will the Father in heaven
give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”

“Mary Has Chosen the Better Part and It Will Not be Taken From Her.”


Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to post the Gospels on Sundays. With Love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke;  LK 10:38-42

Jesus entered a village 
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. 
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? 
Tell her to help me.” 
The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. 
There is need of only one thing. 
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”

Martha and Mary can both be counted among Jesus’ Disciples. Here, Jesus gives Martha advice as he had given to other disciples. Martha is anxious about many things while her sister , Mary, is attentive to only one, Jesus Himself . It was not service for others that Jesus spoke against, but cautions against worry and anxiety. God asks us to serve with generous and good hearts. He is advising that it is necessary to embrace the Word of God  (Jesus Himself) with a generous and loving heart, as Mary did ; and to keep our attentive hearts to Him.  Reference below
