FAITH BOOK

14th SUNDAY (B) JULY 8, 2018

Ezekiel 2: 2-5; Psalm 123; 2 Corinthians 12: 7-10; Mark 6: 1-6

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 Ezekiel reading:

 

"As the Lord spoke to me,

The spirit entered into me and set me on my feet...."

 

Reflection:

 

When we are called upon to speak up for: the rights of others, conformity to God’s law and comfort for the afflicted, we need help. Being a prophet, even in the confines of our homes, workplace, church community, or civil setting, is a risky and, some would say, a foolish business. People don’t like to change their ways of acting and thinking and they don’t like the one calling them to make those changes.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • In what way is God calling me to be a prophet?

  • What help do I need from the Spirit of God to answer this call?
