First Reading 1 Kings 19:16b,19-21

Responsorial Psalm Psalm 16:1-2,5,7-11

Second Reading Galatians 5:1,13-18
Christ has set us free.
In todays Readings we are reminded that those who wish to Join Christ must be ready to disengage themselves from any earthly home, ready to disengage from past responsibilities and ready to disengage from past relationships. This simply means singular detachment from earthly matters. Jesus asks his disciples to put Him first even before the most demanding family ties. Can we do that?
