01-21-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 21, 2014
(St. Agnes, Virgin and Martyr)
After Samuel had inspected all of the sons of Jesse and found none worthy of kingship, he learned that there was yet another . . .
Jesse sent and had the young man brought to them. He was ruddy, a youth handsome to behold and making a splendid appearance.  The LORD said, “There, anoint him, for this is he!”  Then Samuel, with the horn of oil in hand, anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and from that day on, the Spirit of the LORD rushed upon David.  1 Sm 16:1-13

Good Scripture to show in another way, that it is not always the tall or the muscular or the boisterous one who proves to be the best.  Little, ruddy, outcast David then became the Lord’s chosen one, the new King of Israel!  And upon his anointing we see prefigured the anointing in our own Confirmations, the anointing in our Baptisms, like that of Jesus, in which the Spirit of the Lord “rushes” upon us. And that’s pretty awesome!!!

In our Gospel reading today, the disciples of Jesus were picking grain while the Pharisees were picking nits.  Jesus answered their complain about sabbath work saying, “The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath.”  Mk 2:23-28

Sometimes we just have to be very careful with what nits we are picking.  God must always be the center of all our decisions and actions!  And Jesus will always help us with those decisions.

God bless, beloved!
