Our theme for today’s reading is: He Speak with Authority (Which is “The Lord Speak with Authority”) Here is our first reading: 1st: Deuteronomy -20 Instead, he will send you a prophet like me from among your own people, and you are to obey him.
Be sympathetic even if his mind fails him; don’t look down on him just because you are strong and healthy.
The Lord will not forget the kindness you show to your father; it will help you make up for your sins.
And since He is also God, the second person in The Blessed Trinity, somehow the people who listen to Him can sense this in His presence. During the time that The Lord was with us here on Earth, He drove evil spirits, cured the sick, fed thousands of people and raised the dead to life. The Lord Jesus must have also been a good speaker and communicator to command such a following. For us now in our present time The Lord continue to speak with authority, but it is not so much anymore the miracles that convinced people of His authority, although miracles continue to happen. They find life in Christ: Many people in the initial stage of their life does not find the need to ask for help. Along the way they begin to feel the burden of life.
He also commanded us to love one another and to exercise values. They become weary and discourage, and cannot find the way to a wholesome existence.
(Sirach 3:2-14) Here is our Psalm reading for this Sunday: Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

If children do not honor their mothers, it is their own disgrace.
My child, take care of your father when he grows old; give him no cause for worry as long as he lives.
If you respect your father, you can make up for your sins, and if you honor your mother, you are earning great wealth.
