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.

22nd SUNDAY (A) SEPTEMBER 3, 2017

Jeremiah 20: 7-9; Psalm 63; Romans 12: 1-2; Matthew 16: 21-27

Jude Siciliano, OP


From today’s Gospel reading:


Jesus said to the disciples"

"Whoever wishes to come after me must deny self

Take up their cross and follow me."




The disciples didn’t realize what they were getting into when they said "Yes" to Jesus’ invitation to follow him? They discovered that serving God by responding to Jesus’ call, even though a good thing to do, does not guarantee smooth sailing. But they also learned to trust that God was with them as they tried to respond to Jesus’ call, "Come follow me."


So we ask ourselves:


  • Do we hear Jesus’ call now, "Come follow me?" How shall we respond?

  • Can we trust that God will be with us in that response?
