FAITH BOOK

15th SUNDAY (B) July 2018

Amos 7: 12-15; Psalm 85: 9-14; Ephesians 1: 3-14; Mark 6: 7-13

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Book of Amos reading:

 

[Amos answered Amaziah]

"The Lord took me from following the flock,

And said to me,

‘Go and prophesy to my people Israel."

 

Reflection:

 

By our baptism all of us are called to be prophets. We have been given the authority over evil spirits: racism, poverty, addiction, religious intolerance, etc. We can be assured that Jesus has given us sufficient authority to overcome these evils. Shall we go out and draw from that authority we have been given?

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What evil do I feel called to confront?

  • Can I trust that Jesus has already given me, the authority I need, to confront it?
