Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Please read the upcoming Sunday Gospel Reading and review the questions before attending Mass on the weekend. After attending Mass, please engage your family in a discussion and answer the following questions:
What was the message of this Gospel Reading?
What was the message of the homily regarding this Gospel?
How does this pertain to my life and how can I live this message?
Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son
and a son against his father,
a mother against her daughter
and a daughter against her mother,
a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
