FOURTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

July 7, 2019

Reverend Bert S. Kozen V.F., Pastor

 

Dear Parishioners,

This past Thursday our nation celebrated Independence Day. Our scripture readings today, in a way, afford us a reflection on independence. On Independence Day we celebrate the fact that as a sovereign nation we owe allegiance to no one. We have the right to choose our own destiny and can enjoy the liberties and freedom won at such a high price by so many.

Our scriptures for today remind us not of independence, but rather our dependency on God. Our first reading, from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah, tells us how God will spread prosperity over his people. Jerusalem will be comforted and cared for and she will rejoice and flourish in God's presence.

In the gospel passage, taken from Luke, Jesus appoints 72 disciples and sends them out to the towns and villages he intends to visit. He sends them with the instructions - not to be concerned about eating and drinking or where they will lodge. God will provide for them and this will allow them to focus on the task of proclaiming the Kingdom of God. When they return to Jesus there is great rejoicing: awesome tasks have been performed by them. May we work similar wonders through our trust and dependency on God.

May God Bless You,

Fr. Bert
