Word of Life / Palabra de Vida 


    Image result for commitment to god images Jesus’ harsh words toward those desiring to follow Him are not intended to be taken literally but are a way of expressing the importance of committing everything to the Lord, as did Elisha in the first reading. Jesus is saying that nothing must stand in the way of one’s commitment to God’s path. One needs to pay attention to family and social responsibilities but they cannot become obstacles to or prevent one from committing oneself to building and establishing God’s Kingdom.

     We pray that our “deeds” may be worthy of the “sacred gifts” we receive in the sacrifice of this Mass.
