FAITH BOOK

6th SUNDAY -C- FEBRUARY 17, 2019

Jeremiah 17: 5-8; Psalm 1; I Cor. 15: 12, 16-20; Luke 6: 17, 20-26

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

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:

 

Jesus said, "Blessed are you who are poor,

For the kingdom of God is yours."

 

Reflection:

 

As Jesus announced, the blessings of the kingdom are already present to his disciples – but not fully. Thus, his Beatitudes stir up hope and form our way of thinking and acting as we wait for the fullness of God’s Reign. We persevere in our struggles to live as members of God’s community and we pay special attention to those in need, those Jesus has called " blessed."

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What norms do I use to measure "success" in life?

  • How would those norms measure up to the Beatitudes? Or, are they among the "woes" Jesus rejects?
