14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Isaiah 66: 10-14c

Rejoice with Jerusalem, 
be glad for her, all you who love her! 
Rejoice, rejoice with her, 
all you who mourned her! 

So that you may be suckled and satisfied 
from her consoling breast, 
so that you may drink deep with delight 
from her generous nipple. 

For Yahweh says this: 
Look, I am going to send peace 
flowing over her like a river, 
and like a stream in spate 
the glory of the nations. 

You will be suckled, carried on her hip 
and fondled in her lap. 
As a mother comforts a child, 
so I shall comfort you; 
you will be comforted in Jerusalem. 

At the sight your heart will rejoice, 
and your limbs regain vigour 
    like the grass. 
To his servants 
    Yahweh will reveal his hand, 
but to his enemies his fury.

 

Psalm 66: 1-7, 16, 20

Acclaim God, all the earth,
sing psalms to the glory of his name,
glorify him with your praises,
say to God, 'How awesome you are! '

'Your achievements are the measure of your power,
your enemies woo your favour,
all the earth bows down before you,
sings psalms to you, sings psalms to your name.'      
Pause

                Come and see the marvels of God,
                his awesome deeds for the children of Adam:
                he changed the sea into dry land,
                they crossed the river on foot.

                So let us rejoice in him,
                who rules for ever by his power;
                his eyes keep watch on the nations
                to forestall rebellion against him.                
Pause

                Come and listen, all who fear God,
                while I tell what he has done for me.

                    Blessed be God
                    who has not turned away my prayer,
                    nor his own faithful love from me.

 

Galatians 6: 14-18

But as for me, it is out of the question that I should boast at all, except of the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. It is not being circumcised or uncircumcised that matters; but what matters is a new creation. Peace and mercy to all who follow this as their rule and to the Israel of God.

    After this, let no one trouble me; I carry branded on my body the marks of Jesus.

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, my brothers. Amen.

     

Luke 10: 1-12, 17-20

After this the Lord appointed seventy–two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself would be visiting. And he said to them, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to do his harvesting. Start off now, but look, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, let your first words be, "Peace to this house!" And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the labourer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is put before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, "The kingdom of God is very near to you." But whenever you enter a town and they do not make you welcome, go out into its streets and say, "We wipe off the very dust of your town that clings to our feet, and leave it with you. Yet be sure of this: the kingdom of God is very near." I tell you, on the great Day it will be more bearable for Sodom than for that town. 

The seventy–two came back rejoicing. ‘Lord,’ they said, ‘even the devils submit to us when we use your name.’ He said to them, ‘I watched Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Look, I have given you power to tread down serpents and scorpions and the whole strength of the enemy; nothing shall ever hurt you. Yet do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you; rejoice instead that your names are written in heaven.’ 

 

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 7, 2013

INTRODUCTION – (Isaiah 66:10-14; Gal. 6:14-18; Luke 10:1-12, 17-20) Our first reading deals with a time in Jewish history right after the Babylonian exile. After the Jews had been slaves and exiles for 50 years, they were allowed to return home. They didn’t return all at once. What they found when they did return was discouraging and depressing. Their cities, lands and homes were in ruins. God encouraged them with messages of comfort and hope through the prophet Isaiah. He assured them he did not bring them home from exile to abandon them. Jerusalem would be like a mother once again, nurturing them and caring for them. They must rejoice. They will enjoy prosperity once more. The psalm refrain echoes this call to rejoice.

HOMILY – I want to start off asking you to take a couple of deep breaths. That’s a good way to relax, but don’t fall asleep yet. Now take a deep breath and hold it. Keep holding as long as you can. Few people can do it for longer than a minute. Now you can let it out. We know that it is normal for us to have to breathe in and breathe out. I wanted you to do this to illustrate that this is the way our faith works too. We breathe in all that God has for us, in prayer, in Scripture, in the sacraments, in support from fellow believers and in the many ways God helps us. But we need to breathe out the love and mercy of God and be willing to share our faith with others. The gospel tells us Jesus gathered together 72 disciples and sent them out. He had the Apostles, but the 12 of them were not enough for what he wanted to do. He remarked the harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. (idea came from the June, 2013 publication of The Word Among Us.) We pray for vocations at every Mass, but even if we have twice as many priests or religious, we would need you. How can you breathe out God’s love and mercy? First through prayer, prayer for those no longer going to Church and also that our Church might grow through membership. We don’t have to go out and preach on the street corner, but we can witness effectively through sharing how God has blessed us personally. Some people may think you are a little weird if you do that; they may turn their back on you; they may point out to you all the faults the Church has or faults you may have. Jesus said to the 72, “I am sending you like lambs among wolves.” He could see he was being rejected and he knew his followers would be too. St. Luke’s community (for whom Luke wrote his gospel 50 years later) was probably experiencing the same rejection and that’s why Luke quotes Jesus here. Apparently the 72 on this mission didn’t run into hardly any wolves who wanted to tear them apart because they came back rejoicing and telling of their successes. It wouldn’t always be that way, unfortunately. There were lots of martyrs in the early Church.

    We live in a Country where we should be able to practice our religion freely. But there are those who want to put limits on the exercise of our faith. We just ended a two week period of prayer for religious freedom. The bishops called for a holy hour once a month (we have two a week), they called for a daily rosary and prayers at Mass. They encourage sacrifice such as giving up meat on Fridays. For what purpose are we praying for religious freedom? Against our conscience, our government wants us to pay not only for contraceptives but also for abortion inducing drugs. When the Church asked for an exemption to this mandate, the government decided who is religious enough to be granted an exemption. Some Catholic social services in other areas of our nation have had to give up their work with adoptions and foster care because, in the conscience of the Catholic social service agencies, a child should be placed in a stable family where there is a mother and father who are married to one another. The government put them out of the adoption and foster care business. There are more things; however, I talked about these issues and others this past July 4th, and I don’t want to be repetitious. This is another area where we can witness to our faith. We can let our legislators know what we think about the restrictions the government desires to put on our freedom of religion. It is our right to voice our opinion and if enough people speak up, they pay attention.

    One last item I want to mention. After Mass today, we will have the anointing of the sick. Jesus healed the sick and in today’s gospel he sent the 72 out to exorcise demons and to heal the sick. In this way they would proclaim the coming of the kingdom of God, a kingdom in which there would be no more suffering, no more evil, no more sickness and death. Jesus is calling us to eternal life with him. He depends on us to get the word out. Amen.

$ 10.00

Guiding Light homily series — Reflect on the Word — Cycle B     The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light homily series — Steadfast to the Son — Cycle A    The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light — Focusing on the Word — Cycle B    At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light — Feed My Soul — Cycle C    In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

$ 5.00

Guiding Light — The Word Alive in Our Hearts. Cycle A (partial)    Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10
