15th SUNDAY

Amos 7: 12-15; Psalm 85: 9-14;
Ephesians 1: 3-14; Mark 6: 7-13 

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 summoned the Twelve and began to
send them out two by two and gave
them authority over unclean spirits.

Reflection:

As Jesus “summoned” the Twelve, so he “summons” and sends us out in his name. Ephesians reminds us that God has “blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens.” Those blessings should go a long way in helping us respond when someone asks, “What do you believe?” Or “Who is Jesus for you?”

So, we ask ourselves: 

  • In my daily life how am I responding to a “call” from Jesus?

  • In my prayer, conversations, reading, etc., am I sensing a new call from the Lord?
