Word of the day:
I also worked on Christmas stockings. We have been getting orders early again this year. We are at 44 stockings for the season and we got 9 orders yesterday so today will be spent working on those.
Later, Clay and Claire are coming over to help me finish decorating for fall. First we will be going for a run with Aunt Anna because she and I are running a 5K tomorrow.
Friday of the Twenty-fifth week in Ordinary Time
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9:18-22.
Once when Jesus was praying in solitude, and the disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say that I am?"
They said in reply, "John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, 'One of the ancient prophets has arisen.'"
Then he said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter said in reply, "The Messiah of God."
He rebuked them and directed them not to tell this to anyone.
He said, "The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised."
