FAITH BOOK

17th SUNDAY -C- July 28, 2019
Genesis 18: 20-32; Psalm 138; Colossians 2: 12-14; Luke 11: 1-13
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 to his disciples...
"If you then, you who are wicked know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will the Father in heaven
give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?"

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus promises God will give us the Spirit if we ask. So we ask, seek, and knock for that Spirit, believing that we are knocking at a door of a friend who is hospitable and has good bread waiting for us.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Where in my life do I need the Spirit’s life-giving breath?

  • How will I share the gifts the Spirit has given me with someone in my community?
