Scripture:

Jgs 6:11-24a
Mt 19:23-30

Reflection:

Today’s first reading speaks so clearly to me of those times when I feel called to do something and can’t imagine how in the world I will do it. Sometimes it’s a project at work that I need to begin and haven’t a clue how to even start! Oh, that is so humbling. Often it’s an emotional hurdle - a disagreement that needs to be faced or a relationship that needs mending. I feel so small and powerless sometimes in the face of what needs to be done.

Scripture:

Deuteronomy 10:12-22
Matthew 17:22-27

Reflection:

The O.P.s (Order of Preachers) and the C.P.s (Congregation of the Passion) sometimes get confused. Both are communities founded to preach. St. Dominic loved to proclaim the Gospel and founded a community that centers on preaching. His community’s motto is, "To praise, to bless, and to preach."
