Tuesday 27th and 31st Saturday October 2009


on his way to Jerusalem,

Jesus travelled

along the border

between Samaria and Galilee.

As he was going

into a village,

ten men

who had leprosy

met him.

They stood at a distance

and called out

in a loud voice,

“Jesus, Master,

have pity on us!”

When he saw them,

he said,


show yourselves to the priests.”

And as they went,

they were cleansed.

One of them,

when he saw he was healed,

came back,

praising God in a loud voice.

He threw himself

at Jesus’ feet

and thanked him

and he was a Samaritan.

Jesus asked,

“Were not all ten cleansed?

Where are the other nine?

Was no-one found to return

and give praise to God

except this foreigner?

And he said

to the man:

“Stand up and go

on your way.

Your faith

has saved you.”

(Lk. 17, 11-19)

You are a gift my good Lord

in the beauty of my mornings,

in the peace of my evenings.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the sharing of volunteers

and in the humility of their service.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the wounds of the poor

who are saving my life.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the heart of my enemy

calling me to a greater love.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the support of the community

for the service of the poor.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the beauty of my church

where I feel at home.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the love of my family

where I enjoy appreciation.

You are a gift my good Lord

in the unity of my community

where I celebrate our differences.

You are a gift

my good Lord

in the poverty of my heart

where I need your care and love.

I tell you,

use worldly wealth

to gain friends for yourselves,

so that when it is gone,

you will be welcomed

into eternal dwellings.

“Whoever can be trusted

with very little

can also be trusted

with much,

and whoever is dishonest

with very little

will also be dishonest

with much.

So if you have not been trustworthy

in handling worldly wealth,

who will trust you

with true riches?

And if you have not been trustworthy

with someone else’s property,

who will give you

property of your own?

“No servant can serve two masters.

Either he will hate the one

and love the other,

or he will be devoted

to the one

and despise the other.

You cannot serve

both God and Money.”

The Pharisees,

who loved money,

heard all this

and were sneering at Jesus.

He said to them,

“You are the ones who justify

yourselves in the eyes of men,

but God knows your hearts.

What is highly valued among men

is detestable in God’s sight.

(Lk. 16, 9-15)

“There was a rich man

who was dressed in purple

and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.

At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat

what fell from the rich man’s table.

Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

“The time came when the beggar died

and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side.

The rich man also died and was buried.

In hell, where he was in torment,

he looked up and saw Abraham far away,

with Lazarus by his side.

So he called to him,

‘Father Abraham, have pity on me

and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger

in water and cool my tongue,

because I am in agony in this fire.’

“But Abraham replied,

‘Son, remember that in your lifetime

you received your good things,

while Lazarus received bad things,

but now he is comforted here

and you are in agony.

And besides all this,

between us and you

a great chasm has been fixed,

so that those who want to go

from here to you cannot,

nor can anyone cross over

from there to us.’

“He answered,

‘Then I beg you, father,

send Lazarus to my father’s house,

for I have five brothers.

Let him warn them,

so that they will not also come

to this place of torment.’

“Abraham replied,

‘They have Moses and the Prophets;

let them listen to them.’

“ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said,

‘but if someone from the dead goes to them,

they will repent.’

“He said to him,

‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced

even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”

(Lk. 16, 19-31)
