FAITH BOOK

19th SUNDAY -C- August 11, 2019

Wisdom 18: 6-9; Ps 33; Hebrews 11: 1-2, 8-19; Lk 12: 38-40

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...

"Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.

Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself, have them recline at table,

And proceed to wait on them."

 

Reflection:

 

The gospel turns our world upside down. God surprises us and does the unexpected. Which is what is happening for us today at our Eucharist. The master has come, as he said he would, to serve and not to be served. He offers himself as food and drink for us as we continue to wait for his return.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Have you ever been surprised by God’s unexpected action in your life?

  • When you realized what God had done for you, how did you respond?
