Father, I love you and I want to serve you with all the strength of my heart, but for that, I need you to fill my heart with your love. I have filled it with empty and senseless things and now it is hard for me to let go, but with your help, I am sure that I will be able to heal. Let me be always willing and ready to give my best at all times. May Mary, my sweet mother, be my partner and ally in this process of healing and conversion. Amen.

Readings for Saturday.

First Reading for daily Gospel: Reading from the book of Apocalypse 11:4-12: "The prophets who have been a plague to the world will die".

"I, John, heard a voice saying: "These, my two witnesses, are the two olive trees and the two lamps that stand before the Lord of the world. Fire can come from their mouths and consume their enemies if anyone tries to harm them; and if anybody does try to harm them he will certainly be killed in this way. They are able to lock up the sky so that it does not rain as long as they are prophesying; they are able to turn water into blood and strike the whole world with any plague as often as they like. When they have completed their witnessing, the beast that comes out of the Abyss is going to make war on them and overcome them and kill them. Their corpses will lie in the main street of the Great City known by the symbolic names Sodom and Egypt, in which their Lord was crucified. Men out of every people, race, language and nation will stare at their corpses, for three-and-a-half days, not letting them be buried, and the people of the world will be glad about it and celebrate the event by giving presents to each other, because these two prophets have been a plague to the people of the world." After the three-and-a-half days, God breathed life into them and they stood up, and everybody who saw it happen was terrified; then they heard a loud voice from heaven say to them, "Come up here", and while their enemies were watching, they went up to heaven in a cloud."

Psalm 143(144):1-2,9-10: "Blessed be the Lord, my rock." (R).

Daily Gospel for November 21. Luke 20,27-40.

Daily readings Saturday, Gospel for November 21 (The expulsion of the merchants from the temple and the plot of the Pharisees): "At that time, some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, approached Jesus and they put this question to him, "Master, we have it from Moses in writing, that if a man´s married brother dies childless, the man must marry the widow to raise up children for his brother. Well then, there were seven brothers. The first, having married a wife, died childless. The second and then the third married the widow. And the same with all seven, they died leaving no children. Finally, the woman herself died. Now, at the resurrection, to which of them will she be wife since she had been married to all seven?" Jesus replied, "The children of this world take wives and husbands, but those who are judged worthy of a place in the other world and in the resurrection from the dead do not marry because they can no longer die, for they are the same as the angels, and being children of the resurrection they are sons of God. And Moses himself implies that the dead rise again, in the passage about the bush where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now he is God, not of the dead, but of the living; for to him all men are in fact alive." Some scribes then spoke up. "Well put, Master" they said because they would not dare to ask him any more questions". (The daily readings and the Holy Gospel, on this page, are from the Jerusalem Bible)

Daily Readings reflection, by Pope Francis.

"Pope Francis: God always surprises us with love"

In the daily Readings, we observe how the Sadducees start from an imaginary case: "A woman has had seven husbands, dead one after the other", and they ask Jesus: "Whose wife will that woman be after her death?  Jesus, always docile and patient, replies that life after death does not have the same parameters of that earthly one.

Eternal life is another life, in another dimension where, among other things, there will no longer be marriage, which is linked to our existence in this world. In the daily readings, the risen ones, Jesus says, will be like the angels, and will live in a different state, which we cannot experience or even imagine now. This is how Jesus explains it.

But then Jesus, so to speak, goes on the counter attack. And he does it quoting the Holy Scriptures, with a simplicity and originality that leave us full of admiration before our Master, the only Master!

We see that in the daily readings, Jesus finds the proof of the resurrection in the episode of Moses and the burning bush, there where God reveals Himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The name of God is linked to the names of the men and women with whom He is linked, and this link is stronger than death.

We can also say of God´s relationship with us, with each one of us: He is our God. He is the God of each one of us! As if He bore our name. He likes to say it, and this is the covenant. This is why Jesus says in the daily reading: "For he is not the God of the dead, but of the living; indeed all live to him" (Luke 20:38).

This is the decisive bond, the fundamental covenant with Jesus: He himself is the Covenant, He himself is the Life and the Resurrection because with his crucified love he has overcome death. In Jesus, God gives us eternal life, he gives it to all, and all, thanks to him, have the hope of a truer life than this.

The life that God prepares for us is not a simple embellishment of the present one: it surpasses our imagination because God continually surprises us with his love and his mercy.

(...) Before us is the God of the living, the God of the covenant, the God who bears my name, our name.

As he said: "I am the God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob", also the God with my name. With your name, with your name, with your name, with our name God of the living! There is the definitive defeat of sin and death, the beginning of a new time of joy and endless light. (Daily Readings reflection, Angelus, November 11, 2013.).

Daily Prayer for Gospel.

My Lord and my God, I do not want to have the same destiny as branches that come off a tree: they end up dry and without fruits. Help me to feel the strength of your love, to be open to your Word, for you, are a God of the living and not of the dead. In this world, we are all passing through, so my hope is centered on your promises of life. I do not want anything to divert me from this goal. I trust in your company. Amen. (Healing with the serenity prayer for daily readings and Holy Gospel)
