From the Pastor

20th Sunday of Ordinary Time

08-14-2022Fr. Chris Nunes

Jesus’ question “Do you think that I have come come to establish peace to earth? No, I tell you, but rather division”, can generate a lot of misunderstandings. How can we reconcile this with “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”? What about when Jesus considers Himself as humble and meek of heart?

Here Jesus establishes a clear division between those who chose justice and those who chose oppression. Those who look for their own interests and those who promote the dignity of every human person as God’s children and their brothers and sisters. Those who are moved by love and compassion and those who let themselves be moved by selfishness and greed. Those who strive to put the faith in action in a life of discipleship and those who live a superficial faith based only in the minimal practices, just as part of a check list.
