June 21, 2004 Tweflth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Cycle C
July 25, 2004 Seventeeth Sunday in Ordinary Time

FIRST READING:

2 Mac. 7: 1-2, 9-14 "The king of the world will receive us into eternal life at the resurrection." Seven brothers and their mother are tortured and killed for their beliefs.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 17 "I shall be filled, when I awake, with the light of your glory."

SECOND READING:

2 Thess. 2: 16:- 3: 5 "May the Lord strengthen you in everything good that you do or say."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

Rev. 1: 5, 6 "Jesus Christ is the firstborn of the dead; glory and kingship be his for ever and ever. Amen."

GOSPEL: Lk. 20: 27-38

"He is not of the dead but of the living."

Some Sadducees pose a hypothetical problem about a dead woman who in life had married several brothers. The question arose; whose wife is she? Jesus replies that we will live like angels at that time.

 

FOCUS: Through the power of the resurrection, we have new life, both now and forever.

REFLECTION: "The almighty and most holy Word of the Father pervades the whole of reality, everywhere unfolding his power and shining on all things visible and invisible. He sustains it all and binds it together in himself. He leaves nothing devoid of his power but gives life and keeps it in being throughout all of creation and in each individual." Theophane the Recluse

"My beloved ones are encompassed by my love, and are absorbed by it; a love without images and without spoken words. They are back gathered into me, the good from which they flowed."

Bl. Henry Suso

"At last the period of vexatious searching passes; the fortunate seeker receives what he has sought. He finds the heart and establishes himself in it with his mind before God, and stands before Him unswerving like a faithful subject before the King, receiving from Him the power and strength to rule over all his inner and outer life, according to God's good pleasure. This is the moment when the kingdom of God enters within and begins to manifest itself in its natural strength.." Theophane the Recluse

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: God tells us in the readings today, that we cannot compare life in this world with life in the here-after. We should not concern ourselves with what God has in store for us, and think more about doing His will, that is, bringing His peace to earth. The more we love Him and each other, the more life in this world is like the heavenly here-after. These are things God tells us in our hearts. Intellectual-ising them is a waste of time.

- For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence, and let us serve him in peace,

-  For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that we will sustain them by our lives,

- For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to use our eternal gifts to enhance our world.

Faith Formation

Christians sometimes think of heaven, the resurrection, and the kingdom as after-life experiences. Reflect on the passage that our God is a God of the living. How do we experience heaven on earth, resurrection from despair, and God's love for us, now? By listening to Him. By being aware of Him. He's right here. Be still and listen.

- How have you experienced the Living God in your life?

Children's Liturgy

of the Word

- Is God far away in heaven or within us? Where is God?

God is all around us, in us, and always with us. God fills all space and time. God is in us, and we are in Him. We can hear Him if we listen with love. When we look with love we can see Him. He loves us and comforts us, he tells us to be kind to everyone, because He loves everyone.
