God is Close to Us; Are We Far From Him? (#540, 22nd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 22nd Sunday. God is close to us in the Eucharist. Are we close to Him? We have to stay rooted in Christ in order to find the peace, joy, and meaning that we are looking for. But how do we stay rooted in Christ when he doesn’t seem to be listening? The truth is that God is often speaking and communicating with us, and we are the ones who are too busy and distracted to listen. God is with you here in Church; God will be with you the rest of the week. But will you be with him?

Point to Ponder: Is my prayer about my relationship with God, or about getting my prayers in?

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about a time prayer was answered for you.
