Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Luke 12:49-53

The Gospel calls us to risk power, prestige and even acceptance for the sake of the “fire” of equality, justice, compassion and reconciliation that every individual possesses by virtue of being a son and daughter of God. We pray today that we may be transformed in the “fire” of God’s selfless love. We need to take on the “risks” of living our baptisms so that we may be sources of healing and the means of peace in our communities.
