Daily Gospel Reading

In each Eucharist, the Church reads to us from the Holy Scriptures. Not everyone has the opportunity to attend daily mass; but everyone can read the Scriptures for a few minutes each day.

So we get our nourishment and our strength: placing ourselves under the Word each day, letting our hearts be touched; and so we are connected in some mysterious way with all of our brothers and sisters around the world. We are one great universal family, especially if we read the Gospel of the mass of the day. After all, that message resonates across our planet.

Of course theology is important for understanding the scriptures; but the key words used by the Gospel, are very common words such as: love, forgiveness, prayer, and sharing. … Those words do not require great study. They ask for faith and courage.
