Friday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time

When a strong man fully armed guards his palace, his possessions are safe.

But when one stronger than he attacks and overcomes him, he takes away the armor on which he relied and distributes the spoils.

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

The peace of the Lord be with you. The kingdom of God is not and has never been divided. The power of God has never been diminished. The kingdom of God shines through the darkness and brings healing a long with reconciliation even in these times. Jesus warns us once we have been healed and reconciled we must actively seek out his way of life or our circumstances could be worse than before.

Today we are called to draw from well of grace, to walk in the way of God, to be vessels of reconciliation — who do not live in fear, but as a single people are confident that God has been, will be, and is providing for His creation. Be at peace. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
