Wednesday of the Tenth Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

Giving the right example is incredibly important for the disciple.  We don’t want to lead anyone astray either through carelessness or through bad intent.  That’s why Elijah decided to have it out with the prophets of Baal once and for all.  He proved conclusively – through the power of God – that there is no god but our God.  And woe to those prophets of Baal who were later put to death for their actions.  In the same way, Jesus laments those who lead his little ones astray.  Today we examine all of our actions and purify our example that God alone may be glorified.
