GOSPEL READING: LUKE 11:47-54

Every generation continues the wrong of their predecessor. They do not turn from the wicked ways of their ancestors. Ancestors killed the prophets and their descendants build monuments for the prophets. They continue the mistakes or they develop the mistakes into further greater wrongs.

The world is charged with the shedding of the blood of everyone from the foundation of the world. Everyone is responsible for the evil done in the world. No one can escape as innocent for the wrongs done in the world. In one way or the other everyone is responsible for the evil in the world.

முன்னோர் செய்த பாவத்திற்கு பின்வருபவர் உடன்படுகிறார்கள். முன்னோர் செய்த தவற்றை தொடர்கிறார்கள் அல்லது அதை உறுதிபடுத்துகிறார்கள். ஆகவே தீமைகள் அனைத்திற்கும் எதோ ஒரு வழியில் எல்லாரும் உடன்பட்டவர்களே.

GOSPEL READING: LUKE 10:1-9

Jesus is sending his disciples ahead of him to prepare the way for his coming. They are called to be forerunners. They have work in abundance. In fact there are not enough workers. They are to face opposition (they are sent like lambs among wolves). They are not asked to set right or fight back evil with evil.

They have to go about doing their work as if it was worship (Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals = only for the worship they do not need money bags and cloths and sandals). Their work is a life saving work (and greet no one along the way = confer 1Kg chapter 4).

சீடர்கள் முன்னோடிகள்தான். அவர்களுக்கு வேளை அதிகமாக உள்ளது. அவர்கள் பணியில் எதிர்ப்பு உண்டு. எதிர்ப்புகள் மத்தியிலும் அவர்கள் பணியை வழிபாடு போல் ஒரு உயிர்காக்கும் செயலாகச் செய்யவேண்டும்.
