1 Timothy 5:16-25

16If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

17Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

18For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

19Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

20Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

21I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

22Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

23Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.

24Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.

25Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.

Prayer of the Day

Prayer to St. Luke the Evangelist in his day

Today October 18 we celebrate St. Luke the Evangelist, patron of doctors and artists, we ask for his intercession and we know his life

My God that you called St. Luke to spread with the word and with the pen

the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and as a physician and apostle, you guided him to approach the suffering brothers and to heal them in their physical and spiritual illnesses, give them through their intercession the strength necessary to withstand with the meekness of Christ all the trials of life.

Glorious Saint Luke, who through your intercession always adapted our lives to what you wrote in the gospel by grace and impulse of the Holy Spirit. And with a firm faith, through works, let us be a witness to the Love of Jesus Christ

Like you, we can feel very close to Mary our Mother of Heaven, and learn from her, her life, her virtues and her unconditional service to God

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
