About the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B
Sunday, July 7, 2024
The bible readings for the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year B (see below) are a call to listen to God and follow Him even when those around us do not. In the first reading the prophet is sent but knows that the people might not listen. In the second reading Paul speaks of his troubles, but trusts in Christ to use his weaknesses. And in the gospel Jesus is rejected by the people in his home town.
These readings make us think of how we can persist as disciples in times of adversity and how to handle rejection.
