For 25 October 2019, Friday of week 29 in Ordinary Time, based on Luke 12:54-59
Jesus said to the crowds, â€œWhen you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, â€˜It is going to rainâ€™; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, â€˜There will be scorching heatâ€™; and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
Â â€œAnd why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? Thus, when you go with your accuser before a magistrate, on the way make an effort to settle the case, or you may be dragged before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer throw you in prison. I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.â€
