Reliance on God

In the midst of the building financial crisis, where many, many folks have had retirement savings (not to mention their very livelihood!) go up in smoke; comes today’s Gospel Lection where Jesus sends forth the Twelve for the first time in Luke’s account:

He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey,
neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money,
and let no one take a second tunic.
Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.”

His words shuld provide us with a good reminder that He takes care of us in good times and bad, and that we should rely on Him above all else.

I know, easier said than done, but perhaps one good result from such a dire economic forecast.

– Fr. Schnippel
