FAITH BOOK

Sixteenth Sunday -C- July 21, 2019

Genesis 18: 1-10; Psalm 15: 2-5; Colossians 1: 24-28; Luke 10: 38-42

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:

 

"[Martha] had a sister named Mary

Who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.”?

 

Reflection:

 

Mary’s way of being hospitable was not only to welcome the Prophet in their home, but to also listen to his words. She has done what people should do: welcome and listen to the one who speaks God’s word – "the one thing necessary" – as uncomfortable as prophets can sometimes make us feel.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Where and when are my favorite times to stop and listen to God’s Word?

  • Is my life to busy, with no "listening space?"
