For 27 September 2011, Tuesday of 26th week, based on Luke 9:51-56
When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. And he sent messengers ahead of him. On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; but they did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. When his disciples James and John saw it, they said, â€œLord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?â€ But he turned and rebuked them. Then they went on to another village.
