Friday, October 9
Gospel (Lk 11, 15-26): At that time, after Jesus had expelled a demon, some said, "By Beelzebub, prince of demons, cast out demons." Others, to test him, asking him a sign from heaven.
But He knew their thoughts and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and house against house falls. If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand ?, because ye say that I cast out demons by Beelzebub. If I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if by the finger of God cast out demons, has come to you the kingdom of God.
"When a strong man fully armed guards his palace, his goods are safe; But when a stronger than him and overcomes him, he takes away the armor in which he trusted and divides his spoils. He that is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. When the unclean spirit goes out of someone, he roams through arid places seeking rest; and, finding none, he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came. " And on arriving it finds it swept and in order. Then he goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than himself; They come and settle there, and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. "
