Eleventh Sunday In Ordinary Time

June 16, 2013

11th Sunday

TODAY (Green) 2 Sm 12:7-10, 13; Gal 2:16, 19-21; Lk 7:36—8:3

NEXT WEEK (Green) Zec 12:10-11; 13:1; Gal 3:26-29; Lk 9 :18-24

The familiar and comfortable context of dining at table becomes an occasion charged with tension. The tensions are many: sinful woman immediately touches Jesus in public, a host does not extend simple gestures hospitality, others at the table are indignant at Jesus assuming the power and authority to forgive sins. Simon and his guests fail to see who Jesus the one who came to bring the “good news of the kingdom of God.” This kingdom it is not tension that triumphs, but love.
