FIRST READING: Jer. 38: 4-6, 8-10 You bore me to be a man of strife for the whole world. The king is persuaded to allow his leading men to throw Jeremiah into the well of Malchiah. Ebed-melech spoke to the king against these three who did this and Jeremiah was rescued.
Ps. 40 "Lord, come to my aid."
SECOND READING: Heb. 12: 1-4 Let us bear patiently the
struggle placed upon us.
Jn. 10: 27 "My sheep listen to my voice," says the Lord: "I know them, and they follow."
GOSPEL: Lk. 12: 49-53
I have come not to give peace but discord.
Speaking to his disciples Jesus says that he has come to bring fire to the earth and division. Father will be divided against son, and mother against daughter.
FOCUS: "I have come not to give peace, but discord." The presence of God in our lives is an active force rather than a passive one, demanding action on our part. The peace we desire will come through righteousness and justice, not through indifference to others.
REFLECTION: "Have we not the brightest examples of the conversions of the human passions for our Christ in the direction of love? Did a Magdalen, a Paul, a Constantine, an Augustine become mountains of ice after their conversion? Quite the contrary. We should never have had these prodigies of conversion and marvelous holiness if they had not changed the flames of human passion into volcanoes of immense love of God." St. Francis Cabrini
"It is good to withdraw from distractions under the protection of four walls, but it is better to withdraw into solitude within oneself. The first without the second is nothing, whereas the last is of the utmost value even without the first.
It is an excellent thing to go to church, but if you can accustom yourself to pray at home as if in church, such prayer at home is equally valuable.
Just as a man sees another face to face, try to stand before the Lord, so that your soul is face to face with Him. This is something so natural that there should have been no need to mention it specially, for by its very nature the soul should strive always towards God. And the Lord is always near. There is no need to arrange an introduction between them for they are old acquaintances. Ý Theophan the Recluse
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the liturgy by stating that the gospel is the living Word which enlightens our minds towards purposefulness and action. God challenges us to live and support just existence. Introduce the Lord's Prayer and or sign of peace by speaking of our need as a community to work towards justice. Introduce the breaking of the bread by conveying that the Eucharist shatters our sense of false peace that leads to complacency.
Introduction: My sisters and brothers, God is present to us in the fire that burns our lives clean. Let us offer our prayers to God, who transforms our lives through Jesus Christ.
· For the Church of God: that we will joyfully proclaim and live our faith in Christ the eternal gift from God.
· For peace and well-being of the whole world, that God's gift to us in this life will lead us to salvation in the life to come.
· For those who suffer from hunger, sickness, or loneliness: that the gift of Christ's presence bring them health and peace,
· For our community and our families, who welcome Christ into their lives: that they learn to receive him in the poor and suffering people of this world,
Preface: 6 for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Prayers over the People: 6
The gospel relates that Jesus came not to give peace but discord. There is zeal in his speaking of bringing fire to the earth.
Sometimes we fail to make difficult decisions. Sometimes we choose to be aloof to what is needed of us.
· What is the difference between outer and inner peace?
· In what ways do you need to challenge the outer peace of your daily life?
· What are the signs of inner peace?
· How does a community achieve inner peace?
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Talk about how people and societies have kept an outer peace while tolerating injustice. Jesus' most precious gift was peace but a peace based on fairness and equality.
· What did Jesus mean when he said he has come to put people against each other?
· What did Jesus mean by saying hecame not to bring peace but conflict?
Discuss what happens when we don't work out conflicts between us. We often act as if nothing is wrong and we can be peaceful on the outside while being angry inside.
To have inner peace is hard work but that's what Jesus gives to us, the strength to do what seems impossible.
