The Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary TimeFr. John Gerth
Jesus is met with misgivings and rejection by his own relations. Like them, we often resist the prophetic word because of an obstinacy of heart, rooted in a self-pride which must give way to weakness and powerlessness.

I hope that ya'll are having a great summer!
The readings begin today with the Prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel was sent by God to explain the grim truth, his words were not pleasant ones. The people were being punished because they had rebelled against God. The punishment would continue until there was a radical change in their whole religious orientation. To change their hearts from being self absorbed until they were directed again to serving the Lord. God told Ezekiel that the people are not going to like what he had to say. But God also told him that whether the people agreed with him or not, one thing is for sure, they would know that there was a prophet in their midst.
