FAITH BOOK

14th SUNDAY -C- July 7, 2019

Isaiah 66: 10-14; Psalm 66; Galatians 6: 14-18; Luke 10: 1-12, 17-20

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:

 

At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others

Whom he sent ahead of him in pairs

to every town and place he intended to visit.

 

Reflection:

 

The biblical number 72 represents all the nations, all the peoples of the earth. When Jesus sends out 72, it’s an outreach to all people and a statement about the universality of God salvific reach. The kingdom of God, which these missionaries will announce, is for everyone – all races and nations. No one is left out; no one is excluded.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • By our baptism we are all appointed as prophets. To whom is Jesus sending me?

  • What am I to say to them?
