A Reader Writes

Sunday 26 June 2022; 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time; Year C

After last week’s celebrations of the feasts of the Nativity of St John the Baptist, the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary we see, in St Luke’s Gospel, Our Lord’s “resolutely taking the road for Jerusalem”. He and His disciples meet three men, who seem to reject the chance of conversion presented to them.  

St Paul tells the Church in Galatia to stand firm and remember that they were called to liberty (for the Gospel makes us free) –  the radical freedom rejected by the three men on the road.

 In the reading from the first Book of Kings, Elisha accepts his vocation from Elijah and then returns to kiss his father and mother before following Elijah.

The psalm emphasises for us that that road is the path of life of those who have taken refuge in God and responded to the call to conversion.

Our Blessed Mother Mary will guide us along this road to her Son, if we consecrate ourselves to her and trust in the mercy of her Son’s sacred heart.
