15th Sunday of the Year


We’re all family here

One of the little miracles of faith is its power to make strangers into family. People who might never have known or even chosen to be with one another find themselves together in parishes, prayer groups, Bible study circles, the RCIA, and communities of faith. It’s a visible sign of Christ’s selfless love going out to those who otherwise would not be connected and bringing them together in bonds of concern and support. The “other” becomes a “sister” or “brother.” Do something today for one of your “siblings.”

Today’s readings:Isaiah 55:10-11; Romans 8:18-23; Matthew 13:1-23 (103).

“We wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.”

Prepare the Word
