Bulletin Shorts for the Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time – 02 October 2022

Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4.  Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9.  2 Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14.  Luke 17:5-10.

What About Seed and Service?  Here are two puzzling teachings for today.  One, of mulberry tree and mustard seed.  Another, of servant and master.  The first assures us that even a little faith can accomplish very big, even unimaginable things.  The second distinguishes between part-time or full-time service.  Add to this Paul’s advice to Timothy:  “bear your share of hardship for the gospel.”  Disciples, that is, followers of Christ, need to be all-in.

  • What big things will my faith in God accomplish today?
  • What hardship will I bear to be a full-time follower?
  • What mercy work can I do to accomplish this?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
