Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 18 October 2020
Isaiah 45:1, 4-6. Psalm 96:1, 3, 4-5, 7-8, 9-10. 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5b. Matthew 22:15-21.
The Things of God. We often encounter those who set traps for us. They speak in half-truths, only partial stories, code language, even downright lies. It is more than regrettable. It helps if we always look to the One who calls us by name, who chooses and protects us, who empowers us to think clearly and act justly. In the words of Saint Paul, be people of faith, love, and hope.
- What work will my faith in Jesus urge me to do?
- For whom will I do some labor of love?
- Even in stressful times, how can my hope in Jesus Christ endure?
