First Reading:   Genesis 18:1-10a

The Lord visits Abraham and Sarah to tell them that the long-awaited promise of the birth of a child will be fulfilled for them in their old age.

Second Reading:   Colossians 1:15-28

Sometimes Paul preaches with great attention to theological concepts. Here, however, Paul offers a mystical teaching, that the great mystery of God is “Christ in you.”  Because Christ is present in the church, Christians share in his life, suffering and glory.

Gospel:   Luke 10:38-42

Jesus uses his visit to two sister as an occasion to remind disciples that an important aspect of obedience is single-minded devotion to Jesus and his word.
