The Author

"FAITH BOOK" offers 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.

The Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – August  13, 2017

I Kings 19: 9, 11-1 Psalm 85 Romans 9: 1-5 Matthew 14: 22-33

By Jude Siciliano, OP


From today’s I Kings reading:


After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.

When he heard this, Elijah hid his face in his cloak

and went and stood at the entrance of the cave.




Modern prophets are reminders that God is with us and speaks to us, with love, through them. Even though these prophets have shown signs of God’s presence in their words and actions they, like the great prophets of the Scriptures, often meet opposition and even violence as they speak the truth to power.


So we ask ourselves:


  • Can you name someone who has been a prophetic voice for you?

  • What response did you make to what they said?
