Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Jeremiah 17.5-8; Psalm 1; 1 Corinthians 15.12, 16-20; Luke 6.17, 20-26.

From a stretch of level ground, Jesus levels so many of our preconceptions. He declares blessed the poor, the hungry, the weeping, the hated – all whose hearts cry out in longing and expectation for what can only be satisfied by God. Conversely, the rich, the complacent, the jocular, the popular are those whose hearts turn away from the Lord by indulging in finite things. Blessed are those who trust not in themselves, but in the Lord, refusing to be discouraged by their own fragility, limitations, and needs. Hope rest on a fact: “Christ has been raised from the dead.”

Next Week's Readings: 1 Samuel 26.2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-25; Psalm 103; 1 Corinthians 15.46-49; Luke 6.27-38.

1.       Looking at my daily life, what does surrendering everything to the Lord mean to me? In what ways do I hold back?
