13th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle C

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

13th Sunday of Ordinary Time Bulletin Insert for June 26, 2022.

Description: Reflection for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time invites readers to consider: How well do you handle rejection? Luke 9:51-62 shows us how the disciples reacted to rejection. They had entered a Samaritan village ahead of Jesus, as he had asked them to do, to gather an audience. But because the Samaritans had an anti-Jewish prejudice, they didn’t want to hear Jesus.

Jesus had previously told his disciples to deal with rejection by wiping the dirt from their sandals and walking away. Now he lived what he preached by walking away these Samaritans. He didn’t force his beliefs upon the villagers, even though they definitely needed the truths he could have taught them.

There’s a lot we have to give up when we follow Jesus, including the grudges we like to hold and our desire to deal with rejection by retaliating. Why give others that kind of control over our moods? Wiping the dirt from our shoes means we get rid of the bad feelings that steal our joy.
