Twenty Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Exodus 32.7-11, 13-14; Psalm 51; 1 Timothy 1.12-17; Luke 15.1-32.

The Pharisees and scribes complain about Jesus, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them." Yet, God had shown mercy even after their own ancestors at the base of Mount Sinai had "become depraved" and had turned aside from the way that God pointed out to them. God uses the experience of our being lost like the sheep, the coin, and the son to demonstrate compellingly that "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." Christ welcomes sinners and eats with them because only that closeness with Christ's human presence changes sinners into saints. To this Saint Paul attests: "I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and arrogant, but I have been mercifully treated. The grace of our Lord has been abundant, along with faith and love." (Magnificat - September 2019)  read more »
