09-30-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 30, 2018
(26th Sunday, Ordinary Time, B)
After the disciples complained to Jesus about non-followers healing in His name, Jesus responded, whoever is not against us is for us.  Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.  Mk_9:38-43,45,47-48

So don’t worry about those others, beloved.  Salvation is in the hands of God alone.  We – need just be – the best us we can.  For there are lots and lots of traps we, ourselves, can fall into on the journey, without worrying about those others.

Jesus continued, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off.
. . . And if your foot causes you to sin, cut if off.
. . . And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out.  Better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'”  ibid

We have enough to worry about in our own members.  So pray, beloved, that you do not have to undergo that type of temptation,  that you may not have to enter into God’s glory maimed.
