[Comment: Merciful Heart of Jesus] Friends of the Rosary: Today, October 18, is the feast day of St. Luke, Evangelist, the inspired author of the third Gospel and of the Acts of the Apostles. Born in Antioch in Syria, he was an early convert from paganism. St. Luke was a practicing physician and artist. He was a disciple of St. Paul. He accompanied him on his missionary journeys. Like St. Mark, the author of the second Gospel, St. Luke did not personally know Jesus. The Gospel of Luke emphasizes the Merciful Heart of Jesus. It highlights the fact that Christ is the salvation of all men. In it are preserved some of our Lord's most moving parables, like those of the lost sheep and the prodigal son. Legend says that he painted the Blessed Virgin's portrait. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. Luke, Pray for Us! + Mikel A. | TheRosaryNetwork.org, New York —- • Watch this Rosary Live.

The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two disciples whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” Luke 10:1–2Saint Luke, whom we honor today, was a true evangelist. As an evangelist, he followed the inspiration from our Lord and was used to bring God's saving message to the ends of the earth. And there is little doubt that his ministry will continue to have a transforming effect on the lives of many until the end of the world. Tradition states that Saint Luke became a martyr, being hanged on an olive tree. He is identified in the New Testament as a physician and as a disciple of Saint Paul. Both the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles are attributed to him.Saint Luke is often spoken of as an evangelist to the gentiles. His Gospel was written in such a way that it didn't presume a full understanding of the Jewish faith and customs. Therefore, it is believed to have been primarily written for those who are not of Jewish origin. Thus, the life and mission of Saint Luke must remind us that the Gospel needs to be shared with all people, especially with those who do not have a deep and sustaining relationship with God.In today's Gospel from Saint Luke, we read that Jesus sent seventy-two disciples “to every town and place he intended to visit.” Only Luke mentions the larger scale sending of seventy-two disciples. The other Gospels only mention the sending of the Twelve. Though many of these seventy-two disciples would have gone to Jewish territory, some would have unquestionably gone to non-Jewish territory. The mission of these seventy-two was to prepare everyone they encountered for the preaching of Jesus and for the establishment of the Kingdom of God.As we honor Saint Luke today and read this passage from his Gospel, we are reminded that we are all sent by our Lord. We are sent to those who share our faith, such as family, friends and fellow parishioners. We are sent to love them and do all we can to help deepen their faith and love of God. But we are also called to share the Gospel with those who do not yet know Jesus as their Savior. There are so many people we encounter every day who have never truly met our Lord. Are there people in your life that God is calling you to reach out to? Who do you know that God may be calling you to share the Gospel with?Reflect, today, upon the fact that the Gospel is meant for everyone. Speak to our Lord and tell Him that you are ready and willing to be used by Him to bring His saving message to others. As you do so, wait on the Lord, listen to His inspiration, and respond when He calls. If someone comes to mind whom you sense God is calling you to evangelize, begin to pray for that person. Pray for them every day and be attentive to any inspiration God gives you to share His love and saving message with them. Do not be afraid to be an evangelist like Saint Luke. Doing so might make an eternal difference in someone's life.My saving Lord, You sent Your disciples on a mission to share Your saving message with all. Today I especially thank You for the life and ministry of Saint Luke. Please use me, dear Lord, to imitate his wonderful example and to share Your glorious life with others. Please lead me and inspire me to especially reach out to those whom You have put into my life. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
The Flexibility of the Liturgy The detractors of The Gottesdienst Crowd often create a caricature of our advocacy for liturgy, and then beat the stuffing out of that strawman. They accuse us of simply promoting “what we like.” We have been called “liturgical pietists” and “chancel prancers.” We're accused of legalism and inflexibility. The sad part is that our detractors are missing the great benefits and blessings of the liturgy. We know that the liturgy teaches, as ceremonies are catechetical, according to our confessions. The liturgy is inclusive, as people all around the world can gather together to give praise and glory to God, and to receive His sacred gifts - even if there is a language barrier. The liturgy is truly “unity in diversity” in a good and edifying sense. The liturgy does not exclude young children, the handicapped, people of vastly different cultures, or people suffering with cognitive disabilities. The liturgy doesn't focus on one form of pop music to the exclusion of everyone else outside of one target demographic. The liturgy is portable, requires no special equipment, and can be done in adverse conditions. This year, my congregation, Salem Lutheran Church in Gretna, Louisiana missed the Sunday Divine Service for August 29: the Feast of the Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist. We cancelled service because we found ourselves in the path of what was being predicted to be a possible Category 5 hurricane which was given the name “Ida.” The Feast of the Martyrdom of John was also the 16th anniversary of when we were hit by Hurricane Katrina back in 2005 - two weeks after I received my call to serve at Salem. So those of us who did not evacuate made our preparations, gassed up our generators, prayed, watched, and waited. Our deacon and his wife opened their home to several members of the parish, as they have a whole-house generator. The next day, after the storm hit and passed not far to our west, my wife and I headed over to the deacon's house for fellowship and the mutual consolation of the brethren. I grabbed some hymnals and my Treasury of Daily Prayer. We gathered in the living room, and I led a Matins service. Several of us knew the service, others did not. We simply followed the liturgy in the hymnal, the lectionary in the Treasury, and I read the assigned meditation for the day. The Lord spoke to us in Psalm 29:1-4, 10-11 (which we chanted) . He reminded us of His power over thunder, water, and floods, and that He is enthroned in the heavens: Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless[a] his people with peace! These were words of comfort from the Scriptures themselves. There were no puppet show, no gimmicks, no “children's messages”, no jokes, no emotional pop music, and no hipster posing. We did not need a drum kit, guitars, nor even electricity (though we did have that thanks to the generator). We sang “Let All Together Praise Our God” (LSB 389), which takes our attention from ourselves and places it on the Most Holy Trinity, reminding us of our Lord Jesus Christ who “undertakes a great exchange, puts on our human frame, and in return gives us His realm, His glory and His name.” Some of us were were looking at the possibility of complete devastation of their homes and perhaps even massive losses of life in our area. The liturgy is appropriate in good times, bad times, times of joy, times of sorrow, times of intense anxiety, and times of relief. The New Testament reading was 2 Corinthians 8:1-24, in which the apostle exhorts the Christians in Corinth to generosity, and reminds them of the selfless generosity of the churches in Macedonia… in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints. After the storm, we were grateful to know that our sanctuary stood firm with no damage, but our school and church office buildings have severe roof damage, leaving us in a position of dire need. The Holy Spirit's exhortation to generosity was once again something we needed to hear, as we are going to have to sacrifice for the sake of our church's property. The meditation for the day came from the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, Article 15, reminding us that “No tradition was set up by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of meriting the forgiveness of sins, or righteousness. Rather, they were instituted for the sake of good order in the Church.” My parishioners that gathered to hear the Word of the Lord and to sing the Office of Matins ranged from a boy of nine to folks in their sixties. We come from different walks of life, but are united by the bonds of our confession and our status as baptized children of God in this place, facing these circumstances. We listen to different kinds of music, have different tastes in reading, and have a diversity of hobbies and interests. But we were able to unite around the ancient prayer offices, the constant and unchanging Word, a hymn that pointed us to Jesus, the cross, and the Gospel, and we heard anew the words of our confessions, which indeed are catechetical and confessional, but are also a proclamation and exposition of God's Word. Two days later, we would take the words of Apology 15 to heart as we gathered in our hot and humid sanctuary to celebrate the Feast of St. John's Martyrdom as transferred to the midweek service. We usually hold our midweek Mass at 7:30 pm, but given the lack of power and the 6:00 pm curfew imposed to discourage both looters and driving in the pitch blackness, we moved the service to 4:00 pm. We fired up the generator and used two bright lights to illuminate the inside of the church. We ran a fan to circulate the air a bit. We gathered with hymnals in hand and sang the Common Service (Divine Service Three) a capella. We made a couple conservative changes based on our circumstances: lacking bulletins, we omitted the Introit and the Gradual, and we had no distribution hymns. Other than that, the liturgy was the same as it always is. I preached a sermon based on the text. Our sermon hymn was “By All Your Saints in Warfare” with the appropriate stanza to honor John's martyrdom. We also sang “Now Thank We All Our God” as the opening hymn, and closed with the Common Doxology. Some of my parishioners wore shorts and tee shirts. I wore black pants and a black short-sleeve clergy shirt. I did not wear my usual cassock, alb, and chasuble. I wore a red stole. Traditions indeed provide for order in the church, and order is comforting when hurricanes come and bring destruction and change. Traditions anchor us to that which is unchanging. And yet, we have the Christian freedom to alter or modify traditions based on circumstances. To the contrary of the aforementioned straw man argument aimed at The Gottesdienst Crowd, we confess this flexibility and our Christian liberty, while not willy-nilly tossing our traditions that have served the Church for centuries. Indeed, especially in dire times and circumstances, tradition is a great comfort. Christians can gather in the Divine Service in just about any circumstance, as our Lord instituted a simple, low tech rite: words, bread, wine. And embedded in the requirement of “words” is the liturgy, an unchanging and familiar dialogue between celebrant and people, familiar prayers between the people and God, and the comfort of the Word of God that does not change. The consistency of the liturgy provides us with an anchor when the seas are tossing and turning, when the tempest rages, when death lurks, when the flesh rebels, and when the devil prowls. The old adage Repetitio est mater studiorum (Repetition is the mother of learning) is true. The more we know from memory, the better. Memorizing biblical passages, liturgical rites, and well-worn well-known hymns is a bulwark against tyrants who would conspire to rob our children and grandchildren of their faith. A few weeks ago, the Gottesdienst editors held our annual retreat. Several editors and bloggers had to get back home, and so at the very end, we were left with five of us. We wanted to pray one more time together before our departure. We did not have enough hymnals to go around. That didn't matter. We simply sang the service from memory, even singing in harmony. Liturgy is not just for the Sunday service. It is also for small groups, for families, and for individuals. The Treasury of Daily Prayer is a flexible resource that can be used for family devotions, for the daily office, for the Psalter, for daily Scripture reading, and for meditations to use as one wishes. If one prefers Gregorian Chant, the Brotherhood Prayer Book is an excellent resource. Liturgy can be as simple or as elaborate as circumstances allow. And the Treasury is even accessible on your phone or iPad in the form of the Pray Now app. The liturgy is God's word given voice by both repetition and variety, by both tradition and flexibility. It is portable, requires no special technology or elaborate set-up. It can be memorized, sung by thousands, or it can be prayed silently, spoken, or chanted by an individual. The liturgy reminds us, and allows us to partake in the reality that: The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty…. May the Lord give strength to His people! May the Lord bless His people with peace! Amen.
“Whatever we pray, in whatever capacity, is ultimately a response to something already initiated by God in the depths of our hearts. To know this—as Teresa knew—is to rest in the faith that, whether we feel anything or not, God has already initiated something within us whenever we pray.” On the Feast of Saint Teresa of Avila, Br. Sean Glenn ponders the true meaning – and source – of prayer.

Romanus the Melodist looms large from his lifetime in the sixth century. Today he is much sung and little known—at least with certainty. Beautiful legends have filled in the cracks of his biography. According to one, he was tone-deaf and non-musical when heaven granted him the gifts of composition and vocal performance. He went on to compose many verse homilies, kontakia, which are still sung in the Eastern churches today. Having lived in Homs, and then Beirut and Constantinople, he introduced Syriac forms and methods into Byzantine liturgical music.

By Scott Ashley in Anchorage, Alaska 2021 - September 21, 2021 - These seven reasons: 1. We are commanded to go; 2. they are God's sacred appointments; 3. we go to rejoice; 4. to learn to fear God; 5. because we are chosen to be rulers and kings; 6. priests; and 7. teachers.
By Vince Szymkowiak in Anchorage, Alaska 2021 - September 20, 2021 - This group of psalms are called the Royal Psalms because they speak of the coming rule of Jesus Christ. We will see that these psalms apply to us here and now as we celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. These themes are 1. Humility; 2. Thankfulness; 3. Joyful singing; 4. Generosity; 5. Obedience.
By Scott Ashley in Anchorage, Alaska 2021 - September 24, 2021 - Many Bible characters spent time in the wilderness, and it powerfully shaped them. Mankind has lived in a spiritual wilderness because it lacks a key ingredient that Jesus revealed at the Feast of Tabenacles -- "living water!" What is this "living water" and what is it signficance?
Ever since the siege ceased at Troy, betrayal and treachery has ruled the forebears of Sir Gawain... so we are plunged into the fantastical fourteenth-century masterpiece, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Let's meet Arthur, Guinevere, a host of secondary characters, our hero Sir Gawain... and a gigantic knight, green from head to toe... Grace considers this strange beginning, the sins of our forebears, the wonderful poetry itself, and the spooky delight of the Green Knight.
Some do the minimum in order to survive. But we are called to seize every opportunity so we can truly thrive. Proverbs says Wisdom has set a table for us.

I'm so excited to share with you today's guest on What You're Craving- Hannah Howard. She is an amazing author who is able to encapsulate the trials, tribulations, heartbreak and glory of having and recovering from an eating disorder. Hannah and I dish about her new book, “Plenty” and her first book, “Feast” - both of which I devoured, pun intended. Hannah talks all about recovering from an eating disorder while working in the food industry, her surprise in finding out how common it is for people in the food industry to live a double life with their eating disorder, and how she learned to find peace and form a new experience of life through renegotiating her relationship with food. We get into the importance of tuning into what we're feeling, breaking up with dieting, and acknowledging mess-ups as an inevitable part of the process. This is seriously a conversation you do not want to miss. Hannah Howard is a writer and food expert who spent her formative years in New York eating, drinking, serving, bartending, cooking on a line, flipping giant wheels of cheese, and managing restaurants. Her memoir, Feast: True Love in and Out of the Kitchen, debuted as Amazon's #1 bestselling memoir in 2018, and she has recently released her new book Plenty: A Memoir of Food & Family. Hannah has a BA from Columbia University in Creative Writing and Anthropology and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine, VICE, SELF, mic Thrillist, Serious Eats, Bust, refinery29, Salon, and the Chicago Review of Books. Grab your copy of Hannah's new book Plenty here! You can also find out more and by following Hannah on Instagram and checking out her other book Feast here. I'm obsessed with knowing all about you, so please follow (and DM!) me on Instagram and Facebook and find more on my website. We're in this together and the journey is going to be so awesome.

With family: 1 Kings 15; Colossians 2 1 Kings 15 (Listen) Abijam Reigns in Judah 15 Now in the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam the son of Nebat, Abijam began to reign over Judah. 2 He reigned for three years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Maacah the daughter of Abishalom. 3 And he walked in all the sins that his father did before him, and his heart was not wholly true to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father. 4 Nevertheless, for David's sake the LORD his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, setting up his son after him, and establishing Jerusalem, 5 because David did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and did not turn aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. 6 Now there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life. 7 The rest of the acts of Abijam and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam. 8 And Abijam slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David. And Asa his son reigned in his place. Asa Reigns in Judah 9 In the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Asa began to reign over Judah, 10 and he reigned forty-one years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Maacah the daughter of Abishalom. 11 And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, as David his father had done. 12 He put away the male cult prostitutes out of the land and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. 13 He also removed Maacah his mother from being queen mother because she had made an abominable image for Asherah. And Asa cut down her image and burned it at the brook Kidron. 14 But the high places were not taken away. Nevertheless, the heart of Asa was wholly true to the LORD all his days. 15 And he brought into the house of the LORD the sacred gifts of his father and his own sacred gifts, silver, and gold, and vessels. 16 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days. 17 Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and built Ramah, that he might permit no one to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah. 18 Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house and gave them into the hands of his servants. And King Asa sent them to Ben-hadad the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, who lived in Damascus, saying, 19 “Let there be a covenant1 between me and you, as there was between my father and your father. Behold, I am sending to you a present of silver and gold. Go, break your covenant with Baasha king of Israel, that he may withdraw from me.” 20 And Ben-hadad listened to King Asa and sent the commanders of his armies against the cities of Israel and conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel-beth-maacah, and all Chinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali. 21 And when Baasha heard of it, he stopped building Ramah, and he lived in Tirzah. 22 Then King Asa made a proclamation to all Judah, none was exempt, and they carried away the stones of Ramah and its timber, with which Baasha had been building, and with them King Asa built Geba of Benjamin and Mizpah. 23 Now the rest of all the acts of Asa, all his might, and all that he did, and the cities that he built, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? But in his old age he was diseased in his feet. 24 And Asa slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father, and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his place. Nadab Reigns in Israel 25 Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years. 26 He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin which he made Israel to sin. 27 Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him. And Baasha struck him down at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines, for Nadab and all Israel were laying siege to Gibbethon. 28 So Baasha killed him in the third year of Asa king of Judah and reigned in his place. 29 And as soon as he was king, he killed all the house of Jeroboam. He left to the house of Jeroboam not one that breathed, until he had destroyed it, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite. 30 It was for the sins of Jeroboam that he sinned and that he made Israel to sin, and because of the anger to which he provoked the LORD, the God of Israel. 31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days. Baasha Reigns in Israel 33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha the son of Ahijah began to reign over all Israel at Tirzah, and he reigned twenty-four years. 34 He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and walked in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin which he made Israel to sin. Footnotes  15:19 Or treaty; twice in this verse (ESV) Colossians 2 (Listen) 2 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. 5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ. Alive in Christ 6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, 7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. 8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits1 of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities2 and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.3 Let No One Disqualify You 16 Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. 17 These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. 18 Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions,4 puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. 20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations—21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” 22 (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? 23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.

He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!2 The LORD is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the peoples.3 Let them praise your great and awesome name! Holy is he!4 The King in his might loves justice.1 You have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.5 Exalt the LORD our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he! 6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel also was among those who called upon his name. They called to the LORD, and he answered them.7 In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them; they kept his testimonies and the statute that he gave them. 8 O LORD our God, you answered them; you were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their wrongdoings.9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for the LORD our God is holy! His Steadfast Love Endures Forever A Psalm for giving thanks. 100 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!2 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! 3 Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his;2 we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. I Will Walk with Integrity A Psalm of David. 101 I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will make music.2 I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house;3 I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.4 A perverse heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. 5 Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not endure. 6 I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me. 7 No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes. 8 Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD.

It shall be holy throughout its whole extent. 2 Of this a square plot of 500 by 500 cubits shall be for the sanctuary, with fifty cubits for an open space around it. 3 And from this measured district you shall measure off a section 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 broad, in which shall be the sanctuary, the Most Holy Place. 4 It shall be the holy portion of the land. It shall be for the priests, who minister in the sanctuary and approach the LORD to minister to him, and it shall be a place for their houses and a holy place for the sanctuary. 5 Another section, 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 cubits broad, shall be for the Levites who minister at the temple, as their possession for cities to live in.3 6 “Alongside the portion set apart as the holy district you shall assign for the property of the city an area 5,000 cubits broad and 25,000 cubits long. It shall belong to the whole house of Israel. The Portion for the Prince 7 “And to the prince shall belong the land on both sides of the holy district and the property of the city, alongside the holy district and the property of the city, on the west and on the east, corresponding in length to one of the tribal portions, and extending from the western to the eastern boundary 8 of the land. It is to be his property in Israel. And my princes shall no more oppress my people, but they shall let the house of Israel have the land according to their tribes. 9 “Thus says the Lord GOD: Enough, O princes of Israel! Put away violence and oppression, and execute justice and righteousness. Cease your evictions of my people, declares the Lord GOD. 10 “You shall have just balances, a just ephah, and a just bath.4 11 The ephah and the bath shall be of the same measure, the bath containing one tenth of a homer,5 and the ephah one tenth of a homer; the homer shall be the standard measure. 12 The shekel shall be twenty gerahs;6 twenty shekels plus twenty-five shekels plus fifteen shekels shall be your mina.7 13 “This is the offering that you shall make: one sixth of an ephah from each homer of wheat, and one sixth of an ephah from each homer of barley, 14 and as the fixed portion of oil, measured in baths, one tenth of a bath from each cor8 (the cor, like the homer, contains ten baths).9 15 And one sheep from every flock of two hundred, from the watering places of Israel for grain offering, burnt offering, and peace offerings, to make atonement for them, declares the Lord GOD. 16 All the people of the land shall be obliged to give this offering to the prince in Israel. 17 It shall be the prince's duty to furnish the burnt offerings, grain offerings, and drink offerings, at the feasts, the new moons, and the Sabbaths, all the appointed feasts of the house of Israel: he shall provide the sin offerings, grain offerings, burnt offerings, and peace offerings, to make atonement on behalf of the house of Israel. 18 “Thus says the Lord GOD: In the first month, on the first day of the month, you shall take a bull from the herd without blemish, and purify the sanctuary. 19 The priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering and put it on the doorposts of the temple, the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and the posts of the gate of the inner court. 20 You shall do the same on the seventh day of the month for anyone who has sinned through error or ignorance; so you shall make atonement for the temple. 21 “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall celebrate the Feast of the Passover, and for seven days unleavened bread shall be eaten. 22 On that day the prince shall provide for himself and all the people of the land a young bull for a sin offering. 23 And on the seven days of the festival he shall provide as a burnt offering to the LORD seven young bulls and seven rams without blemish, on each of the seven days; and a male goat daily for a sin offering. 24 And he shall provide as a grain offering an ephah for each bull, an ephah for each ram, and a hin10 of oil to each ephah. 25 In the seventh month, on the fifteenth day of the month and for the seven days of the feast, he shall make the same provision for sin offerings, burnt offerings, and grain offerings, and for the oil.

Patrick returns from a trip to catch up on the week that was, specifically the Golden State Warriors' preseason wins over the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Lakers. He talks the W's depth and the newfound wealth of 3-point shooting; James Wiseman's opportunity to feast in open space; Jordan Poole's efficiency, Klay Thompson becoming the W's future Manu Ginobili; the weird awesomeness of seeing fans in the stands at Chase Center; Andre Iguodala talking to the young'uns; the Lakers' own youth movement; and after Jonathan Kuminga's recent (but thankfully non-serious) injury, whether or not there's an Oakland curse!

[Comment: The Humility of Mary] Friends of the Rosary: Today is the feast of St. John XXIII, a contemporary pope best known for convening the Second Vatican Council. Also, today is the feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Across history, heretics have refused to honor Mary as Mother of God. The Holy Virgin is also the mother of the Universal Church, the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ. Mary is the co-redemptrix and mediatrix of all grace. Without the fiat of Mary, we wouldn't be here. It is profoundly ungrateful to deny the role of the Blessed Mother. The humility of Mary is the foundational virtue to imitate and cultivate. We miss this, and won't be able to follow properly Jesus Christ. Ave Maria!

GOD NEVER intended for us to be in perpetual debt. Our modern banking system is a reversal of God's will and the fulfillment of prophecy—the work of the rider on the black horse (Rev. 6:5–6). Financial servitude is not how God intended us to live. In our modern age of seven-year auto loans, twenty-year student loans, thirty-year mortgages, and perpetual credit card debt, the concept is almost unimaginable. We also discuss the three main feasts required of Israel by God: Unleavened Bread, Weeks, and Booths (or Tabernacles, called Sukkot in Hebrew), and how the Feast of Booths connects to the Transfiguration, Mount Hermon, and the seventy “sons of El” who are probably the lesser elohim judged by God in Psalm 82.
