It is 05th November 2015. The readings are from Rom.14:7-12 and the Gospel from Lk.15:1-10. The first reading asserts us that we all have to give a personal account to God on account of life we in live in Christ and die for Him. Jesus lived and died for all of us. We too need to live and die for Jesus. The account of Jesus is with the statement of surplus of love for humanity. What is our personal account? A day will come, we all have to submit our accounts. We will have to face God’s judgement whether we like it or not. “So then, each of us will be accountable to God.” (Rom.14:12). The responsorial Psalm encourages us, “I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.” (Ps.26:13). The Gospel presents the lost sheep and the lost cost to compare with the lost soul. Jesus challenges the attitude of Pharisees and Scribes regarding the sinners and tax collectors. There is so much of joy in heaven because of someone’s change of life. Some of us have become a chronical complainer about others and ending up judging others uncharitably. When we are not willing to help others, we must not condemn the others. God rejoices with the inmates of heaven, when one person is converted to God and begins to put his or her life in order. “There is rejoicing among the angels of God over one repentant sinner.” (Lk.15:10).One person matters for God. You are that one person who can make God happy. May God bless you.
