We’re beginning to read from Luke’s Gospel this week as Jesus returns to his hometown of Nazareth, and we’ll be reading Luke till the end of November, as the season of Advent begins. A good time to take an overall look at the Gospel of Luke, Here’s the Introduction from the New American Bible.
The readings from I Thessalonians end Monday and Tuesday with Paul’s teaching on the last days. Then we read from the Letter to the Colossians. Good introduction and notes from the American Bible .
September 1 is a day for praying for creation.
We celebrate one of our greatest popes, Gregory the Great, September 3rd.
