You have received a spirit of adoption as sons through which we cry: Abba! Father - Daily Bible Readings October 7,2015


1ST READING
 
God explained to Jonah that he should not be displeased or frustrated. After all, it is God who will decide the future of Nineveh and its people. We should remember this, as we strive to proclaim the Gospel. We are merely workers of the Creator who loves His people with a love beyond our understanding, a love that will crucify His Son, Jesus, on the Cross.
 
Jonah 4:1-11
1 Jonah was greatly displeased and became angry that God did not carry out the evil he threatened against Nineveh. 2 He prayed, “I beseech you, Lord, is not this what I said while I was still in my own country? This is why I fled at first to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger, rich in clemency, loathe to punish. 3 And now, Lord, please take my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.” 4 But the Lord asked, “Have you reason to be angry?” 5 Jonah then left the city for a place to the east of it, where he built himself a hut and waited under it in the shade, to see what would happen to the city. 6 And when the Lord God provided a gourd plant, that grew up over Jonah’s head, giving shade that relieved him of any discomfort, Jonah was very happy over the plant. 7 But the next morning at dawn God sent a worm that attacked the plant, so that it withered. 8 And when the sun arose, God sent a burning east wind; and the sun beat upon Jonah’s head till he became faint. Then Jonah asked for death, saying, “I would be better off dead than alive.” 9 But God said to Jonah, “Have you reason to be angry over the plant?” “I have reason to be angry,” Jonah answered, “angry enough to die.” 10 Then the Lord said, “You are concerned over the plant which cost you no labor and which you did not raise; it came up in one night and in one night it perished. 11 And should I not be concerned over Nineveh, the great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot distinguish their right hand from their left, not to mention the many cattle?”

Psalm 86:3-4, 5-6, 9-10
R: Lord, you are merciful and gracious.
3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for to you I call all the day. 4 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. (R) 5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in kindness to all who call upon you. 6 Hearken, O Lord, to my prayer and attend to the sound of my pleading. (R) 9 All the nations you have made shall come and worship you, O Lord, and glorify your name. 10 For you are great, and you do wondrous deeds; you alone are God. (R)
 
GOSPEL
 
As we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, we remember the role that prayer and meditation have in our lives of faith. The rosary is a means for us to meditate upon the mysteries of Christ’s life. The repetitious nature of the rosary helps us quiet our spirits and enter into meditation and contemplation. The words become a mantra of truth that surrounds our interior actions and leads us into the presence of God.
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
You have received a spirit of adoption as sons through which we cry: Abba! Father!
 
Luke 11:1-4
1 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.” 2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come. 3 Give us each day our daily bread 4 and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone  in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test.”

think: We are merely workers of the Creator who loves His people with a love beyond our understanding, a love that will crucify His Son, Jesus, on the cross.
