15th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on July 11, 1993

Readings: Isaiah 55: 10-11; Romans 8: 18-23; Matthew 13: 1-23

What should we feel in the face of tragedies, such as diseases or natural disasters, in light of the first reading where Isaiah eloquently says that God’s words and actions come down to enrich our lives?  Jesus asks us in this day’s Gospel to let God’s words live within us to be the best people that we can be, bringing triumph out of tragedy by being one with our sisters and brothers in their need.  We can never understand or control nature, but we can be in harmony with it through our unique giftedness.
