FAITH BOOK

22nd SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (B) September 2, 2018

Deut. 4:1-2, 6-8; Ps. 15; James 1: 17-18, 21b-22, 27; Mk 7: 1-8, 14-15, 21-23

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 Gospel reading:

 

Jesus responded, "Well did Isaiah prophesy...

'This people honors me with their lips,

But their hearts are far from me...."'

 

Reflection:

 

When God wants to address a person in the Bible to cause a life change, or stir up religious fervor, God addresses the heart. The heart is where God gives insight and places a burning desire for God’s ways in a person. When God wants to go to work on a person, God goes straight to the heart.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • Do my prayers flow from my heart, with deep feelings for God?

  • Would I describe my heart as open to what God may be saying to me?
