Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 

There are people not of our company who this very day are feeding the hungry and housing the homeless, who are casting out demons of poverty or demons of hate. If Jesus could see Samaritans, and tax collectors and Roman soldiers as his co-workers why can’t we be a bit more inclusive? God is not threatened by differences. It is we who are. To Jesus, these were people of character and compassion. We as Christians do not have the monopoly on correctness. “Would that all the people of the Lord were prophets. For whoever is not against us is for us.”

The most important word in today’s gospel reading is the word listen. Jesus admonished his disciples to listen. Even though they did not comprehend what he was saying he wanted them to listen. And so, with all of us. We need to listen to the Word of God even though at the time of our listening we do not comprehend the full meaning. Life’s experiences will have a way of reminding us of what we heard.  And after the experience, the Word of God comes alive, and we understand.

The truth of God is revealed over a period of time. We are not always ready to receive the truth God has for us. No one could handle the full weight of knowledge of the future all at once. Because God is gracious, we are given what we are capable of understanding at the right time. God’s truth dawns in our hearts and minds “in the fullness of time.”

St. Pius of Pietrelcina – Pray for us! – 

In faith, we believe that we see Jesus. But where? In miracles that reveal the wonder of God’s kingdom? Certainly! But we see Jesus most clearly after Herod had dispensed with him; on a cross in the darkness of a Friday afternoon, as he rises from the dead on Easter Sunday, and as he comes to us in every moment. Saint Pius saw Jesus in the poor and dedicated his life to serving Jesus in the impoverished. If we look for Jesus, we will find Jesus in every aspect of life.

Every day of our lives is a journey that God has sent us on to proclaim the Kingdom in our midst. In the simplest acts of charity and the smallest offerings of kindness, we can heal, we can cast out demons; we can reveal the Kingdom of God in our midst. But we need to get out of the way and allow Jesus to work through us.

St. Matthew – Pray for us! – 

Jesus sees Matthew as someone who is despised, unaccepted, and an outcast and he reaches out to him contrary to public opinion. On the other hand, Matthew sees Jesus embodying the kinds of values he cherished deep within. Tax collecting was only a job, and he was willing to lose a comfortable position for a new purpose. This is a great story of risk-taking on the part of Jesus and on the part of Matthew.

Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gon and Paul Chong Ha-sang – Pray for us! – 

Just as a sower places seed in the ground to grow plants, so a lamp is lit that it may give light in the room. The gospel is preached that it may have effect in the lives of Christians. No one puts it in a jar where it will be extinguished or under a bed where it does no good. What we do with the gospel both within our own lives and in sharing it with others, will eventually be revealed both in us and in them.

Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 

According to Jesus discipleship is a way of powerlessness. God is not interested in how much power we have. God is interested in how we powerlessly do God’s will by serving each other. Jesus makes it very clear when he teaches that anyone who wants to be first has to begin by being the last and the servant of all, the powerlessness of a child who trusts.

Why is it that some people fail to perceive and understand the parables? It really is more a matter of moral stance rather than intellectual capacity. People understand what God desires, but they do not wish to act on that understanding. When people cling to themselves and their own interests, God cannot penetrate their lives.

St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Hildegard of Bingen – Pray for us! – 

It is amazing to find Mary Magdalene with the dark past and Joanna, the lady of the Court, in the same company. It is one of the supreme achievements of Jesus that He can enable the most diverse people to live together without in the least losing their own personalities or qualities. There is nothing which the Church needs more than to learn how to harness the diverse temperaments and qualities of different people. If we are failing it is our own fault, for, in Christ, it can be done. It has been done.
