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.

    Dear Father Victor, Putting the reference to the American Bible taught me a lot today. I learned that “the Pauline theme of “imitation” (see 1 Thes 2:14; 1 Cor 4:16; 11:1; 2 Thes 3:9) is rooted in Paul’s view of solidarity in Christ through sharing in Jesus’ cross and in the Spirit of the risen Lord.” As I strive to imitate Christ, I will now remember to share, not only in his Cross, but in his victory over the Cross, something I haven’t done before. I always focus just on the Cross and now you’ve enabled me to broaden that focus to include the “Spirit of the risen Lord.” I thank Jesus for you and that he continue to inspire you and nourish your work. One day He will tell you how many lives you’ve helped Him change. I know of at least 3. God-bless you, Father Victor.
