On the Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, we are called to a conversion of heart. Following Jesus means that we must learn to let go of our selfish desires. Jesus helps us do this by healing our wounds and opening our eyes, ears, minds, and hearts. Here are some resources for this Sunday for your youth ministry program, CCD, Children’s Liturgy of the Word, or family lectio divina.
