I pray today, Lord, for those who are preparing for or have begun their retirement years. May they have the resources necessary to live long and comfortable lives. If they feel lonely, remind them that they are never alone; You are always at their side. Give them the courage to try new things and to enjoy all that life has to offer. May they remain healthy and in good spirits. Amen.


Matthew 11:20-24

Jesus began to reproach the towns
where most of his mighty deeds had been done,
since they had not repented.
“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida!
For if the mighty deeds done in your midst
had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes.
But I tell you, it will be more tolerable
for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.
And as for you, Capernaum:

Will you be exalted to heaven?
You will go down to the nether world.

For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Sodom,
it would have remained until this day.
But I tell you, it will be more tolerable
for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”
