I am the vine, you are the branches, says the Lord: whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit - Daily Bible Readings November 12,2015


1ST READING
 
A truly wise person knows his limits. Fortunately for us, God is infinitely wise and has no limits. We can be 100 percent sure that He is there for us no matter what our situation may be. God always seeks us out in spite of our sinfulness and busyness. He never gives up on us and we should not take advantage of His goodness. We should also seek Him and when He has found us, let us rejoice in His nearness and allow Him to show us the right path.
 
Wisdom 7:22–8:1
22 In Wisdom is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, agile, clear, unstained, certain, not baneful, loving the good, keen, unhampered, beneficent, 23 kindly, firm, secure, tranquil, all-powerful, all-seeing, and pervading all spirits, though they be intelligent, pure and very subtle. 24 For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion, and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity. 25 For she is an aura of the might of God and a pure effusion of the glory of the Almighty; therefore nought that is sullied enters into her. 26 For she is the refulgence of eternal light, the spotless mirror of the power of God, the image of his goodness. 27 And she, who is one, can do all things, and renews everything while herself perduring; and passing into holy souls from age to age, she produces friends of God and prophets. 28 For there is nought God loves, be it not one who dwells with Wisdom. 29 For she is fairer than the sun and surpasses every constellation of the stars. Compared to light, she takes precedence; 30 for that, indeed, night supplants, but wickedness prevails not over Wisdom. 8:1 Indeed, she reaches from end to end mightily and governs all things well.

Psalm 119:89, 90, 91, 130, 135, 175
R: Your word is for ever, O Lord.
89Your word, O Lord, endures forever; it is firm as the heavens. 90Through all generations your truth endures; you have established the earth, and it stands firm. (R) 91According to your ordinances they still stand firm: all things serve you. (R) 130 The revelation of your words sheds light, giving understanding to the simple. (R) 135Let your countenance shine upon your servant, and teach me your statutes. (R) 175Let my soul live to praise you, and may your ordinances help me. (R)
 
GOSPEL
 
It is not always easy to proclaim the Gospel in the secular world. It can be downright hard and discouraging. Many times we will be ridiculed for our beliefs. However, we should not give up on the Gospel. We have experienced it as the most life-giving reality. Let us share this source of eternal life with everyone.
 
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
I am the vine, you are the branches, says the Lord: whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit.
 
Luke 17:20-25
20 Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, Jesus said in reply, “The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed, 21 and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you.” 22 Then he said to his disciples, “The days will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23 There will be those who will say to you, ‘Look, there he is,’ or ‘Look, here he is.’ Do not go off, do not run in pursuit. 24 For just as lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. 25 But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation.”
 
think: Proclaiming the Gospel is the most life-giving reality. Let us share this source of eternal life with everyone.
