FAITH BOOK

16th SUNDAY (A) JULY 19, 2020

Wisdom 12: 13, 16-19; Psalm 86; Rom 8: 26-27; Matthew 13: 24-30

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:

"Let them grow together until harvest; then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters, ‘First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my barn."

Reflection:

If we look at our present lives, we can still see what looks like weeds. Rather than being overcome by discouragement, we hear this parable of hope. Time is being given us to work things out, to let the good seed planted in us bear its fruit. We can trust the Owner knows what to do, and we can have trust in the outcome.

So we ask ourselves:

  • Where in my life do I want to do better?
  • What needs changing?
  • Can I trust that I am not alone in my efforts, but that God is working with me for my well being?
