Well, summer is officially over for me. I'm about to head out for the road - early because of "first day of school" Mass. The summer went way too fast.

Word of the day:
Lk 4:31-37
Jesus went down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee. He taught them on the sabbath, and they were astonished at his teaching because he spoke with authority. In the synagogue there was a man with the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out in a loud voice, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are–the Holy One of God!” Jesus rebuked him and said, “Be quiet! Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down in front of them and came out of him without doing him any harm. They were all amazed and said to one another, “What is there about his word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.” And news of him spread everywhere in the surrounding region.

Thoughts from the cornfield:
Isn't it amazing that Jesus' strongest PR entities were non Jews and demons. Even the demons knew who Jesus was and still we stumble. These people who are praising him in today's readings, are the very same ones who wanted to throw him over the cliff for daring to say that God loves all of his Creation.

God bless the troops!
