Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Jeremiah 38.4-6, 8-10; Psalm 40; Hebrews 12.1-4; Luke 12.49-53.

"I have come to set the earth on fire." Pope Benedict XVI wrote that the fire is Christ's own Passion of love, "a fire that is to be handed on. Whoever comes close to him must be prepared to be burned. This is a fire that makes things bright and pure and free and grand. Being a Christian, then, is daring to entrust oneself to this burning fire." The fire is set ablaze when we speak the truth, like the Prophet Jeremiah, who is punished for it. "The message of the Church is there precisely in order to conflict with our behaviour, to tear man out of his life of lies and to being clarity and truth. Truth makes demands, and it also burns." Christ comes to divide us from whatever keeps us from him. We keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. (Magnificat - August 2019)  read more »
