The Lord said, “As you wish that men would do to you, do so to them. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you?

At that time, Jesus went to a city called Nain, and many of his disciples and a great crowd went with him. As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still.

But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. But when the king heard of it he was angry, and he sent…

Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like a king who arranged for a marriage for his son, and then when it was all ready, he sent out his servants to call all those who were invited to the wedding, but they weren’t willing to come.

Seeking a Relationship to Christ
Episode date: July 30, 2013
In the reading today from the gospel of St Matthew, Chapter 8, Verses 5 to 13, a Roman centurion is seeking 2,000 years ago what we each seek today—a relationship to Christ. Just as this centurion asked Christ to intervene in the life of his dangerously ill servant, so we too can ask Christ to intervene in anything that is not good in our own lives. We can ask Christ to intervene in our lives because of our faults and because of problems that we are not able to solve with our own wills and our own resources.
