Friday Thirty – First Week Ordinary Time
Luke 16: 1-8
Feast Day of St. Leo the Great!
All School Mass
I want everyone to stand. Everyone up! In our gospel, you heard the master say to his servant, “Prepare a full account of yourself?” Today I want you to prepare a full account of your behavior.
Who had homework last night? If you did not do your homework the first time, your parents told you to, sit down?
If you did not go to bed when your parents told you to, sit down?
If you did not make your bed this morning, sit down?
If you fought or said, something means to your brother, sister or parent this morning, sit down?
If you are willing to do whatever it takes to get to heaven, by making the changes God is asking us to make, stand up.
In the Gospel, there is a man who after being told to make a ‘full account of himself’ looks at his life and does whatever it talks to get to make a change in his life.
In our first reading, Paul takes a full account of himself and says, “I have been given a special gift, to do whatever it takes to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. I must go, and he wants to go places where no one has gone to share what Jesus means to him in his life.
As we gather we need to be ‘making a full account’ of our lives, and do whatever it takes to get to heaven. Our Catholic School is the best place to learn about our faith and to learn about Jesus Christ. Hopefully, it is also the best place to live our Catholic faith. Let us make sure that all of our behavior is Christ-like!
