Gospel for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Luke 12:49-53

Summary: Jesus tells His disciples that He came to bring fire and division, not peace. Families will be divided because of Him, with conflicts even among close relatives.

Jesus Speaks of Division

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!

There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!

Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?

No, I tell you, but rather division.

From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
