22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on September 2, 1990

Readings: Jeremiah 20: 7-9; Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 16: 21-27

In today’s Gospel, Jesus says to Peter, and to us, “Get out of my sight, satan!” We are each challenged to follow Jesus by letting go of the established order and overturning unjust arrangements.  May we be open to new challenges and willing to face the impossible because we have faith.  Today, we are asked to take up the cross of uncertainty.
