22nd Sunday -C- September 1, 2019

Sirach 3: 17-18, 20, 28-30 - Ps. 68 - Heb 12: 18-19, 22-24 - Luke 14: 1, 7-14

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:

"Rather, when you are invited go and take the lowest place

So that when the host comes to you, he may say,

‘My friend, move up to a higher position.’"

Reflection:

Jesus hasn’t had a shift in character. He isn’t suggesting subtle ways to climb the social ladder so as to get places of esteem and influence. Rather, he wants those who have, to reach out to those who have not. And if we sit across the table from each other, who knows where our conversations will lead?

So, we ask ourselves:

  • As you reflect on your friendships, are they all similar types of people?

  • How does your world include people from different backgrounds, languages and economic conditions?
