For this reflection for Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Erik Arnold recaps the last month’s readings and the way they challenge us to be missionaries in every day life.
The readings from this month teach us four simple ways we can me missionaries in our every day lives:
1 – speak good news to others.
2 – to bandage wounds
3 – to show hospitality and
4 – to pray and intercede for others.
The scriptures from these last four weeks teach us how we can be missionaries in our daily life by loving our neighbor, right where we are. It’s not too hard, and not too complicated, and doing it will have a huge impact on the world around us.
