FAITH BOOK

21st SUNDAY -C- August 25, 2019

Isaiah 66: 18-21; Psalm 117; Hebrews 12: 5-7, 11-13; Luke 13: 22-30

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:

"And people will come from the east and the west

And from the north and the south

And will recline at table in the Kingdom of God."

Reflection:

When we enter the final and everlasting banquet, Jesus tells us, we will be surprised at those enjoying the feast. God has a pretty broad vision and we will be surprised at those who "made it" through the narrow gate. If we accept this vision of the end time, then we should start preparing for it now. We need a change of glasses; we need to look at our world through biblical lens and act accordingly.

So, we ask ourselves:

  • When I hear the phrase "God’s people" whom do I think are included?

  • How does what Jesus says broaden my notion of those "chosen" by God?
