Daily Gospel (2010)

DG BookGospel: Luke 1:26-38
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God, to a town of Galilee called Nazareth. He was sent to a virgin, who
was betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the family of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. The angel came to her and said,
“Rejoice, full of grace, the Lord is with you!” Mary was troubled at these words, wondering what this greeting could mean. But the

DG BookGospel: Luke 11:14-23
One day, Jesus was driving out a demon, which was mute. When the demon had been driven out, the mute
person could speak, and the people were amazed. Yet some of them said, “He drives out demons by the power of
Beelzebul, the chief of the demons.” Others wanted to put him to the test, by asking him for a heavenly sign.

DG BookGospel: Matthew 5:17-19
Do not think that I have come to annul the law and the prophets. I have not come to annul them, but to fulfill them.
I tell you this: as long as heaven and earth last, not the smallest letter or dot in the law will change, until all is fulfilled.

DG BookGospel: Matthew 18:21-35
Peter asked Jesus, “Lord, how many times must I forgive the offenses of my brother or sister? Seven times?” Jesus answered,
“No, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. This story throws light on the kingdom of Heaven: A king decided to settle accounts
with his servants. Among the first of them was one who owed him ten thousand pieces of gold. As the man could not repay the debt,

DG BookGospel: Luke 4:24-30
Jesus added, “No prophet is honored in his own country. Truly, I say to you, there were many widows in Israel in the days
of Elijah, when the heavens withheld rain for three years and six months and a great famine came over the whole land.
Yet, Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow of Zarephath, in the country of Sidon. There were also many lepers

DG BookGospel: Luke 13:1-9
One day, some people told Jesus what had occurred in the temple: Pilate had had Galileans killed, and their blood mingled with the blood of their
sacrifices. Jesus asked them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered this? No,
I tell you. But unless you change your ways, you will all perish, as they did. And those eighteen persons in Siloah, who were crushed when the

DG BookGospel: Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24a (or Luke 2:41-51a)
Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and from her came Jesus who is called the Christ—the Messiah.
This is how Jesus Christ was born: Mary his mother had been given to Joseph in marriage, but before they lived together,
she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her husband, made plans to divorce her in all

DG BookGospel: Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46
Listen to another example: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a fence around it, dug a hole
for the wine press, built a watchtower, leased the vineyard to tenants, and then, went to a distant country. When harvest
time came, the landowner sent his servants to the tenants to collect his share of the harvest. But the tenants seized his

DG BookGospel: Luke 16:19-31
Once there was a rich man who dressed in purple and fine linen and feasted every day. At his gate lay Lazarus, a poor
man covered with sores, who longed to eat just the scraps falling from the rich man’s table. Even dogs used to come and
lick his sores. It happened that the poor man died, and angels carried him to take his place with Abraham. The rich man also

DG BookGospel: Matthew 20:17-28
When Jesus was going to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, “See, we are going to
Jerusalem. There, the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law; and they will condemn
him to death. They will hand him over to the foreigners, who will mock him, scourge him and crucify him. But he will be
raised to life on the third day.” Then the mother of James and John came to Jesus with her sons, and she knelt down, to ask a favor.
Jesus said to her, “What do you want?” And she answered, “Here, you have my two sons. Grant, that they may sit, one at your right hand
and one at your left, in your kingdom.” Jesus said to the brothers, “You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I am
about to drink?” They answered, “We can.” Jesus replied, “You will indeed drink my cup; but to sit at my right or at my left is not for me to
grant. That will be for those, for whom my Father has prepared it.” The other ten heard all this, and were angry with the two brothers. Then
Jesus called them to him and said, “You know, that the rulers of nations behave like tyrants, and the powerful oppress them. It shall not be
so among you: whoever wants to be great in your community, let him minister to the community. And if you want to be the first of all, make
yourself the servant of all. Be like the Son of Man, who came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life to redeem many.”

 

Reflection:

 

The Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines empathy as:
“the action of understanding, being aware of, being
sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings,
thoughts, and experience of another of either the
past or present without having the feelings,
thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an
objectively explicit manner.” Some are born with the gift
of empathy. Some have to really work hard at practicing
empathy. In today’s gospel neither the disciples nor the
mother of the sons of thunder show empathy towards Jesus.
Here is Jesus achingly confiding in his beloved ones the
heartbreaking reality of his impending death. But they do not
have a word of consolation for him. Worse, some choose that
very moment or immediately after, to bring up issues of their
preferred seating arrangements in heaven! Mercifully, Jesus was
empathy-incarnate. Without taking offence, but setting aside
his own pain, he gives them a patient, kind hearing.
