July 16 – Tuesday
Tuesday of the Fifteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel Reading MT 11:20-24
We might not feel very comfortable with the idea of Jesus as our judge, who thunders terrible threats on big and powerful cities. We might prefer the nice sayings about love and universal fraternity, for these hard words unsettle us from our self-righteousness.
Not only individuals but our whole societies are urgently called to conversion. There are too many innocent victims of our ultra liberal way of life, in economics and in our life together, not to make us ask some very painful questions about the way we are organised. We ask for light to see what part we can play as a responsible citizen.
Prayer: (all together)
Lord Jesus, we are powerless without you. Help us to have a true conversion of heart. Amen
