FAITH BOOK

24th SUNDAY -C- September15, 2019

Exodus 32: 7-11, 13-14; Psalm 51; I Timothy 1: 12-17; Luke 15: 1-32

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:

 

"Or what woman having ten coins and losing one

would not light a lamp and sweep the house,

searching carefully until she finds it?"

Reflection:

Like the shepherd looking for the lost sheep, the woman expends great energy searching for her lost coin. Also, like the shepherd, when the lost object is found there is a joyful celebration with friends and neighbors. This parable offers a refreshing female image for our God who does not give up on us until we are found.

So we ask ourselves:

  • Look around in your world:
  • What person, or group of people, seem lost?
  • What will you do about it?
