July 10 – Tuesday
Tuesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Reading 1 – HOS 8:4-7, 11-13
Responsorial Psalm – Ps 115
The house of Israel trusts in the Lord.
Gospel: MT 9:32-38
When much is given
Sometimes we seem to be like the mute demoniac, we find it so difficult to speak about what we believe in, we seem too embarrassed to speak to others about God and our faith.
We need to ask Jesus to set us free from this fear.
Jesus looks on the crowds and feels compassion for them. He invites his disciples to realise that it is the Lord’s harvest, and that they should pray to be given the privilege of labouring in the harvest.
Prayer: all together
Send O lord, holy apostles, holy workers into your harvest. Amen
