The 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Matthew 10, 26-33

June 25, 2017

We proclaim this Gospel in a world that values wealth; it is frightening to be different and cherish those who are poor, even to be willing to live more simply. We live in a world that rewards the aggressive; it is frightening to be different and meek. We live in a world that hungers for material wealth; it is frightening to be different and hunger for righteousness. We live in a world that esteems those who climb over others to get ahead; it is frightening to be different and act always with mercy. We live in a world that applauds living hard, ‘Going for it all with gusto”; it is frightening to be different and stand for peace. It is frightening to be different, because the different stand out, and stand a chance of being mocked, laughed at, shamed. But we are called to be different.
