Update For Feast of St Luke : Sonnet and Springtime With Obaachan

Today is the feast of St Luke The Evangelist.

Click here for how to approach reading the Gospel of St Luke from the Online British Jesuits.

The gospel from today's Mass says :

"Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you,cure the sick and say to them, "the Kingdom of God is at hand for you."

Today's entry from Margaret Silf's Book of Grace Filled Days says

 "Most of us are not itinerant evangelists like Luke, but the guidelines still apply. 
We are urged, in our normal dealings with one another, to observe simple rules, to share table fellowship as a mark of friendship and trust; to let our presence in any situation be an influence for healing and well being; and to speak of our faith in terms of our own experience of God's power in our life so that others may realise that God is indeed close by, and in fact right there with them."

This short video, Springtime with Obaachan - Japan, illustrates this in a simple and beautiful way.

Music: Ryuichi Sakamoto // Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
