In this reflection for the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, missionary Meg Hunter-Kilmer reminds us that we are beloved, and that we are children of God.
A lot of us, sometimes we just feel trapped. We feel trapped maybe in relationships with our brothers and sisters that are just always so unkind, where we do things that we don’t wanna do. We feel trapped in school, where we know we’re making bad choices, or maybe we feel like we can’t do the right thing.
We can’t work hard enough. We can’t try hard enough. We can’t succeed, to be who we want to be. We feel this way in our marriages, in our parenting with our coworkers. We have so many relationships that are broken. And in this reading, God is telling us, you don’t have to be trapped in that anymore. You can be set free.
