Jesus is the One Thing (#636, 16th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) · What if instead of “so much going on” you had only one thing to worry about? Abraham only worries about making his visitors feel welcome. Martha has Jesus in her home but is too anxious and worried to actually listen to Him. We need to look at Jesus and through him simplify our lives. Jesus doesn’t want to be just one more thing in your busy schedule; Jesus is the One Thing.

Point to Ponder: How much does my idea of hospitality resemble Martha’s?

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about a time you really felt welcome. What can you learn from the experience about true hospitality?
