On the Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, we think about spiritual competition. If somebody is on the path to discipleship, he or she should not be hindered just to satisfy our need to be “more right”. We all must listen to Jesus and do what is right. Here are some resources for this Sunday for youth ministers, catechists, teachers, and parents.
The readings for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year A focus on staying on the path of discipleship. So topics for this weekend might include obedience, Church authority, and discipleship.
The readings for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B remind us not to exclude or hinder others who are doing the work of God. These readings could lead to a discussion about pride and jealousy or to consider the relationship between the Catholics and other religions.
The readings for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C call us to care about others. Am I willing to get outside of my comfort zone and care for my brothers and sisters in need?
