FAITH BOOK

13th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A) June 28, 2020

2 Kings 4: 8-11, 14-16a; Ps 89; Romans 6: 3-4, 8-11; Matthew 10: 37-42

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 2 Kings reading:

 

One day Elisha come to Shunem

Where there was a woman of influence,

Who urged him to dine with her.

 

Reflection:

 

During the first part of our celebration today we, like the Shunemite woman welcomed God’s Word into our "home" – we made room for it in our hearts. As Scripture reminds us, the Word blossoms there with a promise of new life. God sends prophetic people to speak the Word to us, but remember, prophetic people don’t always fit into official categories; they aren’t always bearing an institutional stamp of approval. Yet, God often comes to us in the other and through people who are strangers.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Who comes bearing the Word of God to me?

  • Do they comfort, or challenge me with their message?
