Tomorrow is September 11, 2011, the ten-year anniversary of the bombing of the World Trade Center (when you drive a jet into a building, as far as I'm concerned, you've turned the plane into a bomb). Last night at adoration I was looking at the readings for tomorrow. If you aren't Catholic, let me explain that every Catholic church everywhere in the world reads the same scripture readings every Sunday (and every day during the week, though more variety is allowed during the week). Those readings are arranged in a book called the Lectionary, which hasn't changed in some time. There is a three-year cycle, so that what is read on the Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time (the official Church name for tomorrow) tomorrow is what was read three, six, nine, twelve...years ago. So, what's up tomorrow?
Reading 1 Sir 27:30-28:7
(If you aren't familiar with the Catholic mass, there is also a Psalm and New Testament reading but I'm not reprinting them because they don't go to my point; however, you can see them here)
