13th November 2018 Tuesday 32nd Week in Ordinary Time
Titus 2:1-8,11-14, Luke 17:7-10
“We are God’s servants”
In every moment of our life, we are called to be at the service of God as well as to God through others. Everything we give to Him is simply a small part of all what He has already generously given to us.
Each of us struggle with diﬀerent obstacles that make us put limits and conditions to our service to God and to God through others.
Today, Jesus presents Himself as the servant who comes to our life to serve and love us. He waits on us so that we can follow and imitate His humble service of love.
12th November 2018 Monday 32nd Week in Ordinary Time - St. Josaphat
Titus 1:1-9, Luke 17:1-6
“A bag of potatoes”
In today’s gospel passage, Jesus invites us to be continuously loving and forgiving. We have surely in diﬀerent moments fallen out with a friend, parent, a sibling. We feel that we have been treated unfairly and become resentful towards the other person.
Yet, Jesus calls us to forgive because to pardon others is a gift to ourselves. When we forgive, we free ourselves from the heaviness of anger and bitterness. To forgive continuously, however, is something that is humanly impossible. Real forgiveness starts from God’s love. It comes from an ever-deepening friendship with God. In communion with God, we draw strength and courage to forgive.

“The poor widow”
Many wealthy people were dropping their contributions in the temple treasury, and Jesus was watching them. Among these people, Jesus saw a poor widow who went and put in two small coins. He, who knew the heart of every person, knew that this poor widow gave her all to God. She gave all because she loved God and trusted that He would take care of her.

10th November 2018 Saturday 31st Week in Ordinary Time - St. Leo the Great
Philippians 4:10-19, Luke 16:9-15
“Life with God, my master”
Who is the master that rules my heart and controls my mind?
Today, let us look at our lives in the light of God’s love, and see the real master that is in charge of our lives.
As Christians, we have God as our only Master. By serving Him, we experience an internal freedom to love God as well as serve Him in our brothers and sisters. Free from pursuing personal interest and ambition, we serve and love for the sake of unity and communion.

“Belonging to God”
St Paul wrote, ‘Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God; he bought you for a price. So use your bodies for God’s glory.’ (1 Cor 6: 19-20)
