John 1:47-51
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

War broke out in heaven;
Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.
The dragon and its angels fought back,
but they did not prevail
and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
The huge dragon, the ancient serpent,
who is called the Devil and Satan,
who deceived the whole world,
was thrown down to earth,
and its angels were thrown down with it.

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have salvation and power come,
and the Kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Anointed.
For the accuser of our brothers is cast out,
who accuses them before our God day and night.
They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
love for life did not deter them from death.
Therefore, rejoice, you heavens,
and you who dwell in them.”

The Salvation has already in the Air ,the power and anointing comes from the blood of the Lamb and the Word of the Testimony.

Every Baptised /Transformed or Born again Christian has been cleansed by the blood of Christ and becomes a witness to his Word despite of the challenges of this World.The Works of the Evil one do not affect him or her because the Devil does not have any authority over them because Christ has defeated Satan and his Angels. The Arch Angels are the Heavenly Soldiers who part in the Spiritual Battle against the Evil one .

The Arch Angels were the Witnesses of the Victory , invoking them or respecting them , recalls the Victory of Christ on the Cross and powerful resurrection. The Arch Angels are most powerful Spiritual Beings who are the hands of the Almighty.

Why we have to invoke Arch Angels ?The Salvation plan of Christ involves Heavenly Being, Holy Men and Women and the Holy Trinity , it is a team work very strategically and mysteriously conducted by Christ. Jesus Christ was the Head and captain of the plan but the teamwork had Angels as their front line Spiritual Warriors and Helpers. The Spiritual battle happens every day of a faithful and the power of the Salvation is required to fight the Evil temptations of this World. Angels are the medium of the grace to source out from throne of the Almighty. Praying to Angels to protect us is praying to the Almighty himself because the Angels are the hands of God himself. The Heavenly body is one including saints and the body of Christ the Church the believers of Christ on this Earth. Every believer becomes part of Heaven while living on this Earth through the power of Salvation. The Angels are like elder Heavenly beings who help us like our elder siblings in the family.So we never fail to seek the help of our elderly Beings of Christ specialy while we are in trouble and need help .

To know him is to love him and to love him is to follow him.

Today’s Saint Quote & Prayer:

Today’s Readings:

Job 9:1-12, 14-16
Psalm 88:(3) 10bc-15
Luke 9:57-62
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

How much are you willing to 

Jesus answered him, “No one who sets a hand to the plow
and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.”

Faith is a trusting relationship with our Master. Faith is trusting in the love of God for things we do not understand or for things which our mind can not reason out or find answer. Many a times we back out on our decisions and our ethics because they do not make any sense in the Worldly point of view. The real love of God does expect any thing in return or calculate the value but just trusts because We believe that he is good and he works out all things for our good.

If we backslide in our relationship with him then it is not the real love for him but a expecting love or selfish love. Jesus in today’s Gospel clearly says those backslide in their relationship is not worthy to follow him. To Follow someone trust is very important if we do not trust someone one hundred percent then our journey becomes doubtful specially at times when we do not understand the logic of our relationship or our journey.

The best thing to do when we do not understand or do not hv any answers to our questions then it is best thing to do is to follow blindly to our Master trusting he is good and works out all things for our good though we make mistakes in our followup.

If we take the example of the Sheep following its Shepherd , the Sheep just follows the Shepherd without any reasoning or analysing the consequences. If our transformation is hundred percent then our journey with our Master becomes easy but if the transformation is partial then our trust is not hundred percent and faith is shaky. This is the reason we must know Jesus before we love him and follow him.Actualy all these three processes are one activity because when we try to know him we love him and follow him unknowingly so the first step is to know him by understand him through Scriptures and service. Mother Theresa did this and followed him hundred percent.
