On the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time, we focus on both peace and turmoil. Jesus came to be a light to the whole world, but that can cause distress. While we work for peace, we might encounter conflict. Jesus sustains us through all of this. Here are some resources for this Sunday for your youth ministry program, catechesis, or for use with your family.
The readings for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A highlight that God wills all of the world to be saved. So here we can talk about being inclusive and wanting all people to be joined in the Kingdom of God.
The readings for the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year B encourage us to be wise and not foolishly make choices which will lead us to spiritual death. This is a good time to speak about the virtue of wisdom and how we need the gifts of the Spirit to follow Jesus.
The readings for 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C tell us that discipleship can cause division and that we will have people pulling us in different directions. This is a time to discuss peer pressure and authenticity. It is important to develop relationships which support our faith journeys
