With Praise and Thanksgiving on the
24th Sunday of Ordinary Time
1st Reading: Hebrews 12: 26 – 28
At the time he made the earth shake, but now he has given us this promise: I shall make the earth shake once more and not only the earth but heaven as well. The words once more show
that since the things being shaken are created things, they are going to be changed, so that the unshakable things will be left.
We have been given permission of an unshakable kin-dom. Let us therefore hold on to the grace that we have been given and use it to worship God in a way finds acceptable, and reverence and awe.
2nd Reading : 2 Corinthians 9:11-12
You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but it is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God still, and trust in me.”
