30th Sunday of the year ordinary time cycle city
First reading: Sirach 35:12-14; 16-18.
The one who wrote this book of Sirach what's the wise and pie is Jew of the second century before Christ. He shows that
God shows new favorites but deals equally with all people.
Yeah answers the prayers of all but certainly his greatly concerned with those who are oppressed for the window or the ocean or the ones who cannot help themselves.
We need to constantly show gratitude to God, but the times we are so busy that we almost forget completely about any prayer or dialogue with our God who loves us all.
In this reading we heard the words he who serves God willingly is heard.
Second reading: two Timothy 4:6-8; 16-18.
Into his letters St. Paul often talks about his struggles and sufferings as a part of the journey to return the light.
He writes this letter to Timothy knowing that his death is eminent.
He says on his deathbed that he has fought the good fight.
Those words can help each of us in our struggles in our difficulties to understand that they are a part of the journey to eternal life.
Gospel: Luke 18:9-14.
This parable is told by Jesus to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and yet despised others Who did not do as they did.
