Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings
designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is
also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish
bulletins people take home.
From today’s Gospel reading:
"Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
For one to the least brothers and sisters of mine,
You did for me."
Jesus’ parable opens our imagination and invites us
to look around at our lives and our world –
especially those often overlooked. The great King,
Jesus on his throne, has identified himself with the
least. Where they are, there is Jesus.
So, we ask ourselves:
Have I missed Christ’s presence
among the fringes of society?
Who are the least, God is calling me
to serve? How?
