This week’s Roman Catholic Statement to live by is:

I understand what trust means

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke


Jesus said to his disciples to look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves.  But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers. …

So do not start worrying: Where will my food come from? Or my drink/ or my clothes/ Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things.  Instead, be concerned about everything else with the Kingdom of God and he will provide all these other things.

So do not worry about tomorrow; it will have enough worries of its own. There is no need to add to the troubles each day brings.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
