29th SUNDAY (A) October 18, 2020

Isaiah 45: 4-6; Psalm 96; I Thessalonians 1: 1-5b; Matthew 22: 15-21

by Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s I Thessalonians reading:

 

For our gospel did not come to you in word alone, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.

 

Reflection:

 

Paul reminds the Thessalonians that they not only heard the word of the gospel but saw its effects on their lives. If we are going through a testing time it’s good to remind ourselves how God helped us in the past. Such a reminder can build hope and enable endurance in the present.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Is there someone who needs to hear an encouraging word from us?

  • When I try to give that support will I do as Paul does, remind them of the faith they have received and how God is their source of power and endurance?
